MKTKOOL 


AND THE GANG’S GMHG 


They’re students at the East Harlem 
Performing Arts School. 

Kool and The Gang contributed 
one thousand dollars to support their 
school’s special program of education. 
And the Ampex Golden Reel Award 
made it possible. It’s more than just 
another award. It’s a thousand dollars 
to a charity named by artists receiving 

the honor. _ _ . . , 

For Kool and The Gang, Celebrate 
was the album. House of Music was 
the recording studio, and these kids 
were the winners. 

So far over a quarter of a million 
dollars in Golden Reel contributions 
have gone to designated charities. 

For children’s diseases. The arts. 
Environmental associations. The 
needy. 

Our warmest congratulations to 
Kool and The Gang, House of Music 
and to all of the other fine recording 
professionals who’ve earned the 
Golden Reel Award.

EDITORIAL 

A Consummate Record Man 


With the tragic death of Boardwalk Entertainment 
head Neil Bogart last week, the industry lost one of 
its most innovative and flamboyant members. 
Always hustling, always on the move, Bogart in 
many ways embodied the essence of the true record 
man — someone not only plugged into what was 
happening on the street, but also capable of making 
new things happen. 

Bogart’s life in the fast lane often made others un- 
comfortable — they couldn’t really figure out what 
he was up to, but they knew that whatever it was, he 
stood as good a chance as anyone of pulling it off. 
From “bubblegum” to disco to his return to the top 
with rock’n’ roll, Bogart was a dynamic mover, quick 
to sense the public tastes and even better at taking 


advantage of an opening. 

However, far from being just another huckster, 
Bogart combined his street sense with the ability to 
operate in the board room, and the result was a 
fountainhead of innovation. Starting with his 
success at the Buddah label in the ’60s with “bub- 
blegum,” moving on to his recent successes with 
Joan Jett and Richard “Dimples” Fields with 
Boardwalk, Bogart showed the way for many others 
to follow. 

Cash Box extends its most sincere condolences 
to the family and friends of Neil Bogart. He was sure- 
ly a giant in this industry, and we are all better for 
having had the privilege of knowing and dealing with 
him over the years.

| Attorneys General Ask High 
! Court To Review Betamax 


by Michael Glynn 

j LOS ANGELES — In what is being viewed 
as perhaps the most significant show of 
^ support yet for efforts pushing towards a 
Supreme Court review of last year’s lower 
» court ruling that held off-air home video 
recording constitutes copyright infringe- 
: * ment, the attorneys general of 12 states 
jointly filed an amicus curiae (friend-of-the- 
court) brief as part of a petition for a writ of 
certiorari. The attorneys general’s brief 
now brings the number of amici filed asking 
for the high court to call up the 9th Circuit 
Court of Appeals’ records on the judge- 
ment to 17, joining those of several 
manufacturers, ad agencies, consumer ad- 
vocates and retail and electronics industry 
* trade associations. 

Among the attorneys general who signed 
the brief are John Ashcroft, Missouri, presi- 
dent of the National Assn, of Attorneys 
General; Wilson C. Condon, Alaska; 
Thomas J. Miller, Iowa; Warren R. Span- 
naus, Minnesota; William A. Allain, Mis- 
sissippi; Michael T. Greely, Montana; Rufus 
L. Edmisten, North Carolina; William J. 
Brown, Ohio; Jan E. Cartwright, Oklahoma; 
John J. Easton, Vermont; and Bronson C. 
LaFollette, Wisconsin. 

More than 50 parties are represented in 
the 17 amici briefs, including an ad hoc 
committee on copyright law, the consumer 
affairs departments of at least six states, 
the U.S. Consumer Assn., and a number of 
public consumer rights activists. 


Special Counsel to the Electronic In- 
dustries Assn.’s Consumer Electronics 
Group (CEG) J. Edward Day noted that 
while it’s “difficult to predict” whether the 
Supreme Court will take on the case (it’s es- 
timated that out of some 5,000 cases each 
year, only 150 are heard), he felt that "the 
attorneys general's filing ... is a most 
helpful one because they have done this on 
behalf of their constituents.” 

Consumer Interest 

Indeed EIA/CEG senior vice president 
Jack Wayman suggested that “what 
probably prompted this is the fact that the 
consumer affairs department of most state 
governments is incorporated in the attor- 
ney general’s office.” Bill Baker, vice presi- 
dent of corporate communications for 
Sony, one of the defendants in the so-called 
“Betamax case,” said he believed that a 
pivotal event in insuring the participation of 
the 12 state attorneys general was a 
seminar on consumer affairs held by the 
National Assn, of Attorneys General earlier 
this year. 

However, Edward Robertson, Jr., Deputy 
Attorney General for the state of Missouri 
under Attorney General John Ashcroft 
(who initiated the brief), noted that work on 
the brief actually started before Sony had 
even filed its petition for review. 

“We started corresponding with people 
from Sony at the end of January with a 
possible view towards writing an amicus

Black Music Month Campaigns Stress 
Mom And Pop Retailer Involvement 


by Michael Martinez 

LOS ANGELES — Greater involvement 
among ma and pa retailers and an 
emphasis on the cultural significance of 
black music are the dominant themes of 
major label marketing/merchandising 
campaigns keyed Black Music Month. 

While some label promotions have been 
tailored specifically to June’s month-long 
black music celebration, others reflect on- 
going campaigns highlighting current and 
catalog product by black artists. Increased 
advertising and display support for small, 
independent black retailers is a common 
feature of most music promotions. 

Commenting on the importance of black 


retail to his company’s campaign, Keith 
Jackson, vice president of marketing for 
the black music division at RCA, said, 
“They are the first to get into new music, 
and buy into what radio plays right out of 
the box, before heavy rotation starts. 
Anyone who overlooks their importance is 
losing a major segment of the business.” 

RCA plans a black music promotion 
starting in June and running through the 
summer that embodies features 
specifically aimed at ma and pa outlets. 
Aside from a generic poster spotlighting 
the 22 artists featured in the black music 
celebration, individual artist posters, flyers

Congress Passes 
Tough Laws For 
Music, Vid Piracy 


>, 


\ 



by Earl B. Abrams 

WASHINGTON — Big time recording or 
movie pirates will be facing $250,000 fines 
and/or five years in jail soon. Con- 
gressional Legislation imposing penalties 
under felony categories was passed May 1 0 
and is on President Reagan’s desk awaiting 
his signature. The president has until May 
24 to sign or veto the bill. If he does not sign 
it, it becomes law without his signature. 

The new criminal statute substitutes for 
the present misdemeanor penalties that 
have a maximum penalty of $25,000 and/or 
one year in jail. 

The maximum penalty in the new legisla- 
tion applies to first-time violators who make 
or distribute 1,000 or more copies of a 
sound recording within a 180-day period. 
The penalty for first-time violators who 
make or distribute less than 1 ,000 but more 
han 1 00 records in the same time period is 
$25,000 and/or two years in jail; and for 


those who make or distribute less than 100 
records in the six month period or where 
more than 180 days elapse between viola- 
tions, the penalty is $25,000 and/or one 
year in jail. 

Second-time and subsequent violators 
face an immediate maximum penalty no 
matter how many records are made or 
distributed. 

The penalty for motion picture piracy is 
similar except that the number of copies 
that triggers the penalties is smaller than 
for record piracy. Sixty-five movies or more 
invoke the maximum penalty; between 65 
and seven, the intermediate penalty, and 
less than seven, the least penalty. The time 
period is the same. 

The new legislation imposes the same 
maximum $250,000 and/or five years in jail 
penalty for counterfeiting record and movie 
labels for first and subsequent offenses. 
The present law imposes only a $10,000 
fine and/or one year in jail for a first offense 
and $35,000 and/or two years in jail for sub- 
sequent offenses. 

The new legislation deletes the require- 
ment that fraudulent intent be shown. T raf-

Cancer Takes Life 
Of Indie Label 
Legend Neil Bogart 

by Jeffrey Ressner 

LOS ANGELES — ■ Neil Bogart, chairman of 
the board of Boardwalk Entertainment Co. 
and one of the most successful indepen- 
dent record company executives, died 
May 8 of cancer at Cedars Sinai Medical 
Center here. Bogart, who helped guide the 
recording careers of such artists as Donna 
Summer, Joan Jett, Kiss, Robin Williams. 
The Village People, Parliament and Rodney 
Dangerfield, in addition to participating in 
several film and television projects, was 39 
years old. 

More than 1,000 persons attended 
memorial services for Bogart May 1 1 at the 
Hillside Memorial Chapel, including the 
heads of practically every record label, 
California Governor Jerry Brown, Lt. 
Governor Mike Curb and many members of 
the entertainment industry. The hour-long 
service, presided over by Rabbi Hillel 
Silverman, included a eulogy in the form of

BUSINESS NOTES 

Mathias May Reach Senate In May 

LOS ANGELES — The Mathias Amendment, S. 1758, which would establish copyright fees 
to be levied on manufacturers and importers of audio and video taping hardware and blank 
tapes and effectively outlaw unauthorized rental of copyrighted works, could reach the 
floor of the Senate as soon as the end of May. 

Currently pending in the Senate Judiciary Committee, the Mathias Amendment “will 
probably be reported (sent) to the full Senate sometime around the end of May,” ac- 
cording to Charlie Borden, a member of the Judiciary Committee staff. 

The Senate committee heard arguments from both supporters and opponents of the bill 
at a hearing April 21 in Washington, D.C. (Cash Box, April 24). No further hearings are 
scheduled, and Borden said that other than some "discussion and debate" on the commit- 
tee, nothing else remained in the way of reporting the amendment to the Senate. Borden 
was "optimistic” that the amendment would move on to the Senate without much further 
delay, even though, he added, “we don't have a solid vote count (at this time).” 

On the other hand, the Edwards bill, H.R. 5705 (the House equivalent to the Mathias 
Amendment), will remain in the Courts, Civil Liberties & Administration of Justice subcom- 
mittee of the House Judiciary Committee until at least June. The subcommittee conducted 
hearings in Los Angeles April 12-14, gathering testimony from various representatives of 
the entertainment industry, as well as a number of opposition groups, and at least one 
more will be conducted. 

"An additional hearing will be conducted in June for the purpose of hearing government 
witnesses," said Bruce Lehman, House Judiciary Committee counsel. “The date will be an- 
nounced around the beginning of June." 

Following the June hearing — which will most likely include the Register of Copyrights 
and representatives of the Commerce and possibly the Justice Departments — the sub- 
committee will consider the bill for reporting to the full committee. Once the committee has 
deliberated, it will then have the option of reporting it to the full House, discarding it or 
sending it back to the subcommittee. 

One hitch that could kill the bill for the year, however, is the deadline based on the ad- 
journment of Congress for the upcoming elections. Adjournment of the House is set at Oct. 

1 (with the still-doubtful possibility of Congress reconvening after the elections); but if the 
bill is not considered by the House by the end of the year, it will have to be re-introduced 
next year. 

NARM Indie Committee Meets In N.Y. 

NEW YORK — The Independent Distributors Advisory Committee of the National Assn, of 
Recording Merchandisers (NARM) met here May 6 for its first definitive planning session. 
The meeting, which focused on several projects, gave special weight to discussions on im- 
proving the market position of the indies. Major projects outlined during the meeting in- 
cluded development of a brochure identifying the value of independent distribution and 
the opening of communication between indies based around the country. 

The brochure, which will contain information from a soon-to-be completed NARM 
statistical survey on independent distributors, will describe the various marketing, sales 
and promotion functions which independent distributors perform. Available to producers, 
artists and labels, the brochure will list independent distributors and the regions they ser- 
vice. While a target date has yet to be set for publication of the pamphlet, Jim Schwartz, 
chairman of the committee, told Cash Box that he expected to have the data from the 
NARM survey by “late May or early June.” 

Increasing communication between distributors was also singled out as an issue. “A 
good part of what we discussed is that we all have to be successful together,” said 
Schwartz. "We as a group are only as strong as each distributor is in his own market. We 
have to open up communications — it doesn’t hurt to pick up a phone.” 

Additionally, an Independent Distributors Conference is planned for the fall. Open to all 
independent distributors and independent manufacturers, Schwartz described it as “a 
mini-convention," at which he hopes to see increased communication between the indies’ 
mid-level employees. “We would bring our sales managers, our buyers and promotion 
heads in order to get them all together. With or without the company heads — just let these 
people trade information. It would be great." The committee will meet again prior to the 
conference. 

Aside from Schwartz, the Committee includes Jack Bernstein, Pickwick Distribution; 
John Cassetta, Alpha Dist.; Bud Daily, H.W. Daily; Tony Dalesandro, M.S. Dist.; Warren 
Hildebrand, All South Dist.; Steve Marmaduke, Western Merchandisers; Ron Schafer, Piks 
Dist.; Joe Simone, Progress Dist.; and Jerry Winston, Malverne Distribution. 

BMI Awards $15,000 To 17 Composers 

NEW YORK — Seventeen American composers ranging in age from 15 to 25 are sharing 
$15,000 in the 30th annual Broadcast Music, Inc. (BMI) Awards to Student Composers. 
Four of the students had been previous BMI student composer award winners, while two 
others received honorable mentions last year. In addition, Commendations of Excellence 
were presented to BMI affiliates Roger Sessions and Milton Babbitt at the May 13 
ceremony for contributions to the world of concert music. 

The BMI award winners include Ronald Catalbiano, Jeffrey Cotton, Anthony Daniels, 
Michelle Ekizian, Norm D. Elkies, Timothy Kramer, Ian Krouse, David Lang, James Legg, 
Steven Mackey, James Primrosch, Jonathan Rabson, Daniel Schechter, Leon Shernoff, 
Christopher J. Smith, Michael Svoboda and Alan Yim. 

Established in 1951, the BMI Awards to Student Composers annually gives cash prizes 
to encourage the creation of concert music by student composers under the age of 26. 

ASCAP Grants $9,500 To Young Composers 

NEW YORK — Fifteen American composers have been named recipients of the American 
Society of Composers, Authors and Publishers (ASCAP) Foundation grants to young com- 
posers. David Lang of New Haven, Conn, won $1 ,250, while Martin Amlin of Boston, Mass., 
and Christopher Deschenes of New York won $1 ,000 each. Stephen Paul Hartke of Goleta, 
Calif, won $750 and 11 grants of $500 were awarded to Karl Boelter, Roger Bourland, 
Ronald Catalbiano, David Flippo, Kenneth Fuchs, Ralph Jackson, James Littlefield, James 
Lovendusky, Charles Porter, James Primrosch and Michael Torke. 

The scholarship winners were chosen by a panel consisting of Louis Brunelli, assistant 
dean, Julliard School of Music and composers Carman Moore and George Perle. 

The ASCAP Foundation grant program was established in 1979 to help young com- 
posers. A total of $9,500 was awarded to the winners to help them pursue musical studies 
and develop their talents and skills. The funding for the grant program came from the Jack 
and Amy Norworth Memorial Fund.

Retail Promotions 
Help Boost Sales 
For Mother’s Day 

by Jim Bessman 

NEW YORK — Bolstered by a good selec- 
tion of hit product, sales over the Mother’s 
Day weekend, May 8-9, for the most part in- 
creased, especially among retailers engag- 
ing in specially targeted promotions, ac- 
cording to a Cash Box survey. However, 
while a number of retailers reported in- 
creases ranging from under 10% to 20% or 
so, factors like the weather, type of location 
and an uncertainty among some that 
Mother’s Day is a valid record-selling holi- 
day, kept sales relatively flat in various 
areas. 

Another factor entering into the picture 
was the economy. With things so tight, 
Mother’s Day “gives the consumers an ex- 
cuse to be out buying things,” according to 
Ralph King, vice president, marketing, at 
the 138-store, Durham, N.C. -based Record 
Bar chain. “Inflation has been down for 
three months, and consumers are primed 
and ready to spend, but not on big ticket 
items,” said King, who added that Record 
Bar's sales over Mother’s Day were 15% up 
over the previous weekend and "better” 
than last year. 

King also noted that the strongest 
Mother's Day action occurred in secondary 
markets of less than 100,000 population, 
which fits well with the chain’s 60-40 
secondary-to-major-market breakdown. 
He said that secondary markets are 
generally turning in a stronger perfor- 
mance because they are not hurt by unem- 
ployment as badly as big cities. 

In New York state, Mother’s Day sales 
were “tremendous,” according to John 
Grandoni, vice president of the Buffalo- 
based Cavages chain, who cited three in- 
gredients combining to increase sales for 
the holiday by 25% over the preceding 
week and 20% over the same period a year 
ago. 

“First, we had a big promotion that tied 
in 15 albums with a free ‘Rose for Mom’ 
giveaway with purchase of any of those 
albums,” said Grandoni, who took out a 
full-page print ad, bought time on five radio 
stations and displayed the albums with 
roses in-store to support the promotion. 
“Second, we had a lot of good new releases 
to choose from.” 

Rain Helped 

But perhaps the biggest factor was the 
spring rain on Saturday, May 8, which 
brought shoppers to the malls, where all 
nine Gavages store are located. The weather 
also played a major role in making the 
Mother’s Day weekend only “so-so” at 
Atlanta’s 23-store Turtles chain, instead of 
what vice president Joe Martin regards as a 
traditional “blockbuster." Said Martin,

STANDING ON THE EDGE — Frankie 
Miller — Capitol ST-12206 — Producer: 
Barry Beckett — List: 8.98 — Bar Coded 

Just because he performs hook-heavy 
rock with a raw, earthy voice, a lot of folks 
have compared Scottish singer Frankie 
Miller to Rod Stewart and Bob Seger. 
Although he doesn’t possess Stewart’s an- 
drogenous sexuality or Seger's Detroit 
streetsense, there is a bit of vocal resem- 
blance, yet Miller somehow comes across 
as being more brazen than either of the 
other two artists.

and their latest LP is no exception. Side one 
features four tunes bursting with optimistic 
fervor, while the flip offers something dif- 
ferent, a four-part mini-“opera" in which 
the two partners hold a musical dialogue 
about working class amour. A/C, urban 
contemporary and some pop devotees 
should find this disc a valuable addition to 
their collection.

List: 8.98 — Bar Coded 

Ever since its inception back in 1 975, The 
Ritchie Family has been a major exponent 
of dance-oriented boogie. Their latest ef- 
fort contains lots of the fast-moving dance- 
funk they’ve been acclaimed for, as well as 
a small sampling of slower, mid-tempo 
tracks. Finely-textured harmonies have 
always been the key ingredient in this trio’s 
success in both clubs and retail stores and 
this record’s action on the B/C and pop 
charts recently more than proves its post- 
disco credibility.

Wynette’s latest leads off with a cut called

femininity, Wynette loyalists, many of whom 
are deeply interested in the family side of 
Wynette’s much-heralded career, should 
be delighted with “What It's Like To Be A 
Woman," a dialogue between the country 
queen and her daughter, Tina.

Wonder fishes this smiling, strutting 
dance track out of his "Original Musi- 
quarium” as the second single from that 
package, following up his chart-topping 
"That Girl." Stevie’s got a sweet-tooth

chip and kisses” amidst the slick, swirl-

POP 

THE J. GEILS BAND (EMI America 8100) 
Angel In Blue (3:54) (Center City Music — 
ASCAP) (S. Justman) (Producer: S. 
Justman) 

A departure from the previous uptempo 
singles on the wildly successful “Freeze- 
Frame” LP, this song could’ve just as easily 


been at home on a Bruce Springsteen or 
even a Jackson Browne LP. A siory song 
about how life in the fast lane has turned 
one beautiful young girl into an emotionally , 
burnt-out shell, it has a slow, Phil Spec- 
torish quality that is moving. 

SPLIT ENZ (A&M 2411) 

Six Months In A Leaky Boat (3:05) (Enz 
Music — BMI) (T. Finn, Split Enz) 
(Producers: H. Padgham, Split Enz) 

Synthesizers bubble like sparkling 
champagne on this frothy bit of folklore 
from the Enz as the group retells the tale of 
the immigrants' arrival from England to the 
shores of New Zealand. A bright bit of pop 
from this snappy outfit. 

JOHN MARTYN (Duke/Atlantic DU 4041) 
Couldn’t Love You More (3:48) (Island 
Music Inc. — BMI) (J. Martyn) (Producer: P. 
Collins) 

Glaswegian Martyn is a longtime fave of 
the English music press, which seemed to- . 
feel that his brand of folk cum jazz would 
never reach a mass audience. This cult ar- 
tist may well prove them wrong with this 
debut for Genesis’ Duke label. A tender 
love song that softly stirs his jazz and folk 
styles together, it’s perfectfor A/C and pop. 
Genesis’ Phil Collins produced, played 
drums and added his vocals to Martyn’s. , 
KANSAS (Kirshner ZS5 02903) 

Play The Game Tonight (3:26) (Don 
Kirshner Music/Blackwood Music Pub- v 
lishing/Fifty Grand Music, Inc. — BMI) (L. , 
Livgren, P. Ehart, R. Williams) (Producers: 
Kansas, K. Scott) 

From the forthcoming “Vinyl Confes- 
sions," the latest from Kansas is. a stormy - 
slice of ornate pop/rock, moving from a 
quiet “Dust In The Wind”-type opening to a -, 
marching chorus. Already making chart 
moves, this should put Kansas back on top.

She Used To Sing On Sunday (3:23) (Larry 
Gatlin Music — BMI) (L. Gatlin) (Producers: 

L. Gatlin, S. Gatlin, R. Gatlin) 

The Gatlins incorporate their tight, dis- 
tinctive vocals in the picture of a young girl 
who loses her innocence in the “entertain- v 
ment capitol of the world.” The platter is 
somewhat of a patchwork quilt, weaving 
fragments of familiar gospel tunes "Amaz- 
ing Grace” and “Oh, Victory In Jesus" 
within the confines of a snappy chorus, and 
the use of an organ and tabernacle-like 
echo on the backing vocals adds to the . 
record’s allusions to religion.

NEW FACES TO W4TCH 



Wendy Waldman 

Wendy Waldman, a 30-year-old 
singer/songwriter who recorded five 
soft pop albums before making a transi- 
tion to hard rock with her new release, 
“Which Way to Main Street,” has always 
been influenced by a wide range of 
musical formats. As a toddler, she was 
nursed on a steady diet of classical 
symphonies and also heavily affected 
by her father’s scores for such television 
classics as Rocky & Bullwinkle, Perry 
Mason, Star Trek and Gunsmoke. But 
with her coming of age also came 
changes in tastes. 

"When I was in my early teens,” 
remembers Waldman, "I was the one 
person in my house who wasn’t into 
classical music. I got into the blues, folk, 
rock 'n' roll and Broadway show tunes. 
Way back then I would go through 
stages. I was a big Gershwin freak, and 
then I went just as radically from that to 
listening to Mississippi John Hurt, Skip 
James and Howlin' Wolf. Then I went on 
to early Cream and Laura Nyro. In the 
latter half of the 1970s, I always mixed 
up musical styles as a listener, and I still 
do as a writer.” 

While an adolescent, Waldman star- 
ted singing as a solo performer at local 
venues like The Troubadour, The Ash 
Grove and The Ice House before hook- 


ing up with fellow L.A. musicians An- 
drew Gold and Karla Bonoff for an ill- 
fated group project. Shifting back to 
solo gigs, the young singer started 
writing love songs on acoustic guitar 
and piano and was signed to Warner 
Bros, in 1973, for whom she released 
nearly an album a year. Although her 
Warner Bros, output was praised by 
many critics as highly literate, 
passionate works, commercial success 
was not as widespread, and attheend of 
1978 she asked to leave the label. 

The next few years were pivotal, albeit 
difficult, ones for Waldman, who had 
split the Los Angeles scene for a while to 
head up to Seattle, Wash. Following her 
exit from Warner Bros., she was sur- 
prised to learn that other labels weren’t 
all that interested in adding her to their 
rosters. Out of work, hungry and 
depressed, she spent two years 
deciding on a new musical direction and 
went on the road for a while with buddy 
Linda Ronstadt, which helped lift her 
spirits tremendously. 

Waldman’s musical horizons expan- 
ded even further during the !ate-’70s 
and records by The Clash, Phil Collins, 
Genesis and Blue Oyster Cult graced 
her stereo’s turntable. Around the same 
time, she began writing a new brand of 
pop-rock and ultimately had her com- 
positions laid down on wax by such per- 
formers as Randy Mesiner, Patti Austin 
and Grammy winner Kim Carnes. Her 
songwriting talents, together with her 
past recording efforts, led to her signing 
with Epic last year, under the guidance 
of Steve Geller, the newly appointed 
head of A&R for that label. 

Working with producer Eddie 
Kramer, whose past credits include 
associations with Jimi Hendrix and 
Carly Simon, Waldman and her new 
band went into the studio in late 1981 
and recently emerged with the “Which 
Way to Main Street” LP, which encom- 
passes both romantic ballads and gritty 
rockers.

Unique ‘Chariots’ Promotion 
Pays Off Big For PolyGram 

by Jim Bessman 


NEW YORK — Harry Losk, PolyGram 
Records’ senior vice president, marketing, 
called the seven-month campaign that 
resulted in both the Chariots Of Fire 
soundtrack album and “Main Theme From 
Chariots Of Fire," single riding the #1 spots 
on their respective Cash Box charts, a 
"once in a lifetime deal” — as well as his 
most difficult and rewarding marketing in- 
volvement. For Bob Edson, PolyGram's 
vice president, promotions, the hard-won 
success of the Vangelis product was more 
satisfying than that of the soundtrack 
smashes for Saturday Night Fever and 
Grease, both of which he worked on while 
executive vice president and general 
manager at RSO Records. 

Both the album, which was released last 
Sept. 17, and the single, which was shipped 
Oct. 26, came together atop the charts the 
week ending April 17. The label’s entire 
promotion, publicity, marketing and sales 
departments teamed together on the pro- 
ject, and they had their work cut out for 
them. The biggest obstacle to surmount 
was the natural resistance by program- 
mers to play the unusual score composed 
by an artist with an unpronounceable name 
for a largely unseen foreign film. Once that 
was accomplished, the life of the product 
had to be maintained until the film was 
released nationally months later. 
PolyGram’s success in both efforts has 
possibly established Vangelis as a major 
artist in the U.S., but it has unquestionably 
fueled morale in the company's promotion 
department, which now feels it can break 
just about anything. 

The Chariots Of Fire album and single 
actually began their long race to the top last 
July at a screening of the film for company 
officials. Harry Losk was among those in 
the audience. 

“I was so enthralled with the movie that I 
wasn’t even aware of the music,” Losk 
recalled. Shortly afterwards, the 
soundtrack album came across his desk. 
The record was on Polydor in England and 
had done very well there. After one listen, 
Losk was equally thrilled with the music. 
But the film was playing at only one theater 
each in New York and Los Angeles follow- 
ing its initial screening Sept. 25 at the New 
York Film Festival. 

There was never any question that 
PolyGram would release the soundtrack 


and single. The company was committed to 
breaking Vangelis long before the movie; 
his “Friends Of Mr. Cairo” LP with ex-Yes 
lead singer Jon Anderson as Jon & 
Vangelis was #109 on the Cash Box album 
chart the week of the Chariots Of Fire album 
release. But no one knew how to promote 
an electronic music soundtrack album from 
a foreign film that had opened in only two 
cities. 

According to Losk, initial sales projec- 
tions for the album were understandably 
light. “We unexpectedly began to see sub- 
stantial sales in New York and L.A.," he 
related, “enough so that we marketing peo- 
ple were sniffing the kind of smell that we 
look for.” 

Encouraging Signs 

PolyGram then conducted in-depth 
research in New York and Los Angeles 
stores. “We discovered an interesting 
phenomenon at a couple of New York 
stores near the theater where the movie 
was playing," said Losk. "Every night at 
8:00 p.m., when the first showing broke, 30 
or 40 people would come in and buy the 
album. The same thing was happening in 
L.A. So we figured that the music obviously 
had one of those magic pulls that triggers 
motivation. For somebody to actually go in 
and want that album right at the moment 
was a good enough test for us.” 

In late September, the question of what 
to do with the album was brought up at the 
weekly sales and promotion meeting. “We 
couldn’t let it die because it had too much 
going for it,” said Losk, "but we also 
realized that we had a major marketing 
problem since the film had not opened 
anywhere else.” 

According to Losk, that meeting was 
pivotal. “The response was fabulous,” he 
said. "Everybody from every department 
had suggestions, from placing articles in 
running magazines to tie-ins with shoe 
manufacturers to postering a rented van 
and driving it to the New York Marathon 
with the soundtrack blaring out.” 

Then the publicity department got on the 
horn. On Oct. 28, Len Epand, vice presi- 
dent, press and artist relations, sent out a 
unique “Dear Music Fan” letter together 
with the two-day old “Main Theme From 
Chariots Of Fire" single and associated 
press clips to all general pop press, TV and 
radio syndicators, AOR stations and

Chronicling life in the senior citizen set, 
this Roger Miller composition brings

Cancer Takes Life 
Of Indie Label 
Legend Neil Bogart 

(continued from page 5) 

facets of the entertainment industry, in- 
cluding vocal work on a 1962 chart record 
called “Bobbie” and a stint with Cash Box. 
His first job with a record company was as a 
promotion man for MGM Records and, by 
age 25, he had moved to Allen Klein’s small 
Cameo-Parkway label. Later he became 
chief executive for Buddah Records, and 
earned the moniker of “The Bubblegum 
King” for his frequent forays into teen 
music such as “Simon Sez” by the 1910 
Fruitgum Company. During this time he 
also worked with The Isley Brothers, 
Melanie, and The Edwin Hawkins Singers 
and was involved with the Curtis Mayfield 
soundtrack for the immensely popular film 
Superfly. 

All of these activities occurred in 
Bogart’s Manhattan base, but by the early 
1970s he grew bored with the New York 
lifestyle and decided to move to Southern 
California. He came to Los Angeles in 1973 
and founded Casablanca Records, in 
partnership with Warner Bros. After a 
financial crisis stemming in large part from 
the failure of a double-LP highlighting seg- 
ments from Johnny Carson’s Tonight 
Show, Bogart restructured his organization 
and dubbed it Casablanca Records and 
Filmworks. The motion picture arm of the 
company went on to produce such box of- 
fice hits as The Deep, Midnight Express, 
Foxes and Thank God It’s Friday, while the 
music division pioneered the disco 
phenomenon of the late 70s. During this 
period Bogart’s acts collected over five 
dozen gold and two dozen platinum 
records. 

Following disco’s decline, Bogart sold 
his interest in Casablanca for $30 million 
and formed the Boardwalk Entertainment 
complex, named after the valuable 
property in the Monopoly game, in 1980. It 
was with Boardwalk that Bogart helped 
propell rock ‘n’ roller Joan Jett and soul 
crooner Richard "Dimples” Fields to top 
chart status. While chief executive with 
Boardwalk, he maintained close involve- 
ment with all sectors of the company — 
A&R, promotion, advertising and 
marketing — and constantly set up fresh 
challenges for himself. “My philosophy in 
life," said Bogart in an interview, "has 
always been to not just walk trails that have 
been blazed by other people, but to create 
new paths for others to follow.” 

In addition to his business activities, 
Bogart was also firmly committed to com- 
munity affairs. Among other posts, he ser- 
ved as a member of the Board of Governors 
of Cedars Sinai Medical Center, Executive 
Vice President of the Betty Ford Cancer 
Center, Commissioner to The California 
Museum of Science and Industry and The 
Los Angeles Coliseum, and vice president 
of the Beverly Hills Little League. 

Following his death, a Neil Bogart 
Memorial Cancer Fund was established to 
promote further research of the disease. All 
donations may be sent to Boardwalk Enter- 
tainment’s offices in Hollywood.

EAST COASTINGS — The first Boston Rock Music Seminar at club Spit ushered in the 
month of May for the hardcores of Beantown. Approximately 350 music professionals 
and would-be entrepreneurs and artists turned out to hear six panels on independent 
promotion and distribution, progressive radio, music and business law, press and 
publicity, booking and management and future trends, ail under the auspices of Boston 
Rock magazine. Among those participating in the panels were Boston Rock president 
Michael Dreese, WBCN's Oedipus, Rounder’s Duncan Brown, Eat Record’s Don Rose, 
New York Rocker’s Andy Schwartz, Trouser Press’ Ira Robbins, Spit’s John Lyons, 
Reach Out International Records' Neil Cooper, Rockpool’s Mark Josephson, Elektra’s 
Maxanne Sartori, CBS’s Jeff Jones and WLYN’s Crass. A real nuts-and-bolts affair 
slanted heavily towards independents seeking a toe-hold in the industry, the sym- 
posium also provided a meeting place for attendees to buttonhole panelists or discuss 
deals. In addition, a guide for estimating the cost of making and marketing a record was 
prepared by Boston Rock, as was a handout listing indie distributors, sympathetic radio 
outlets, fanzines and alternative publications with an interest in rock. All-in-all an en-

POINTS WEST — Fer Sure, fer sure, one of the most tubular songs ever to grace the 
Los Angeles airwaves, a Frank Zappa composition entitled “Valley Girls,” has been 
getting spectacular response from listeners at Pasadena’s progressive rock station 
KROQ, where DJ’s report it’s the most requested tune ever. During a break in cramming 
for her 9th grade finals, we spoke to Frank’s teenage & totally Val daughter Moon Unit, 
who’s responsible for the hilarious, improvised monologue that pervades the ode. “Dad 
wrote it for me becuz he calls me his little Valley Girl,” she explained. “I’m al- 
ways shopping on the boulevard. After he wrote the chorus, he asked me 
if I wanted to do some lyrics. It was just a spur of the moment thing.” What 

makes the San Fernando Valley section 
of L.A. so special? we inquired. “There’s 
just so much to do — shopping at 
Judy’s, the Galleria, movie theaters 
everywhere. It’s great!” Before going 
back to textbooks, Zappa’s charming 
offspring gave us a little insight into her 
nomenclature. “It’s notonewhole name. 
People often say ‘MoonUnit,’ as if it’s ! 
pronounced like ’MaryLou’ or 
something, but it's actually ‘Moon Unit.’ 
Unit is my middle name. I like it a lot.” In 
her spare time, Ms. Z rehearses with her 
band (“I have to get my act together.”) 
curls up with a copy of GO, or catches 
the scene at her favorite club, Godzilla’s. 

To the max . . . While on the subject of 
pubescent recording artists, Malibu 
local Tuff Muffin can be heard on 
Freeway Record’s two-volume spoken 
word set, "Voices of the Angels," rapping about the beach scene and growing up west 
of the Pacific Coast Highway. The collection also features such L.A. stalwarts as poet 
Charles Bukowski, Surf Punk Dennis Dragon, rock impressario Kim Fowley, Doors 
necromancer Danny Sugarman, the illustrious Tequila Mockingbird, Blaster Dave 
Alvin and spaced scribe Richard Meltzer. An off-the-wall package well worth the bucks , 
... An all-new series of 15 songs touted as the first recordings made by The Beatles is 
being prepared for release this summer. Supposedly, the music was recorded in Ham- 
burg, Germany, in 1961. The set is produced by Dirk Summers, who hopes to launch his 
Cayman Music label with the disc. Plans are tentative at this point, but the record may 
be put out as a four-EP package. Its first single is said to be a version of “Ain’t She 
Sweet,” with John Lennon handling lead vocals and backed by the Fab Four with Tony 
Sheridan. According to a source who has heard some of the tunes, there are many 
covers included, and all of the songs are in stereo, with little hiss or other bothersome 
noise. More on this one as it develops . . . Paramount Pictures is slated to release 
Grease II on June 1 1 , and music this time around will not be supplied by the Bee Gees. 
Instead, many popular singers from the late-’50s and early-;60s will contribute to the 
soundtrack. So far, the best scene in the flick looks like one where Tab Hunter portrays 
a sex education teacher and gives his class a musical lesson dubbed “Re-pro-duction.” 

In the best “birds and the bees” -type lecture around, Tab advises his students, “Let 
your stamen go berserk.” Also due from the studio in June is Star Trek II: The Wrath of 
Khan, directed by Nicholas Meyer with a score by James Horner, who previously wrote 
music for such films as Wolfen and Humanoids From The Deep . . . More on movies: 
While recording a new album due out in August, Devo is hoping to arrange a develop- 
ment deal for a feature film it has in mind . . . Posh Boy Records just shipped an EP 
called “Gesundheit” by Chrlstlane F., whose life was recently the subject of a movie 
featuring David Bowie concert footage . . . Yo, listen up! Liberty Records (EMI) is ex- 
pecting large sales for the soundtrack album to Rocky III. Epic Records will release two 
versions of the movie's theme song, “Eye of the Tiger,” by Survivor, jeffrey ressner

brief," said Robertson. "We reviewed the 
case and felt it had a consumer impact and 
was particularly applicable to states such 
as Missouri with a heavy concentration of 
manufacturing where, due to shift require- 
ments, video taping allows workers to 
watch what they want to watch at the times 
which are most convenient." 


pending in the Congress," said Robertson, 
referring to the DeConcini bill and Mathias 
Amendment in the Senate and the Parris 
bill and Edwards Amendment in the House 
of Representatives. “This issue is going 
down two roads and several attorneys 
general felt that the legislative path was the 
surer one.” 


Initial Brief 

A preliminary draft of the brief was 
prepared by Feb. 24, according to 
Robertson, copies of which were sent to the 
attorneys general of all 50 states and a 
followup letter was sent on March 17 to 
those who did not respond to the first. In all, 
Robertson said that the offices of attorneys 
general from 30 states did respond but 
more than half that number declined to of- 
ficially support the brief. 

“Many felt that the issue could best be 
responded to by legislation currently 


Congress Passes 
Tough Laws For 
Music, Video Piracy 


(continued from page 5) 

ticking in counterfeit labels is punishable if 
it is committed "knowingly." 

Commenting on the passage of the bill, 
Recording Industry Assn, of America 
(RIAA) president Stanley Gortikov said: 
“Congressional passage of legislation to in- 
crease criminal penalties is a boon to music 
creators and copyright owners and a threat 
to criminals willing to steal their work. Our 
industry is grateful to those legislators who 
realistically responded to our need for a 
protected haven in which to create, record 
and market our music.” 

Record and motion picture industry 
spokesmen claim that federal enforcement 
will be heightened with entry of the new 
penalties into law. Heretofore, it has been 
charged, enforcement authorities were 
lukewarm in prosecuting violators since the 
law called for misdemeanor penalties. Now 
that the penalties are to be made more 
serious, observers believe that enforce- 
ment will take a big jump forward. 

“We are very encouraged by Congress' 
recognition of the seriousness of the 
problem and are pleased by their 
response,” said Joel Schoenfeld, RIAA 
anti-piracy special counsel. "We hope 
these increased penalties will not only en- 
courage expanded action by the FBI and 
U.S. Attorney’s offices around the country, 
but will also be a clear signal to all pirates 
and counterfeiters that the government in- 
tends to put them out of business and into 
jail." 

The bills are S. 691, sponsored by Sen. 
Strom Thurmond (R-S.C.), who is chairman 
of the Senate Judiciary Committee, and 
H R. 3530, sponsored by Rep. Barney 
Frank (D-Mass.). 


The attorneys general who signed the 
brief represent, for the most part, southern 
and midwestern states which, like Missouri, 
have a large number of industrial and 
agricultural workers. Ironically, though, 
with the exception of Illinois, none has a 
significantly large VCR population at pre- 
sent. 

“It was unusual, in my view, to see the 
people who were interested in it,” 
Robertson stated. “We never expected 
California; there are just too many oppos- 
ing interests there. But we thought we’d get 
Michigan and Pennsylvania, and New York 
was teetering on the edge for a while,” 

Apparently, a number of the attorneys 
general participating in the brief weren’t 
motivated to do so solely on behalf of state 
consumer interests. In most cases, the at- 
torneys general are hoping that a high court 
judgement would rectify what they see as a 
misinterpretation by the lower court of 
copyright law, according to Robertson, and 
in the process, clarify it. 

“We feel very strongly that the copyright 
law does not extend into the area of private 
use,” said Bill Roach, administrator for the 
Iowa attorney general’s office. "We’re in 
agreement, basically, with the legal argu- 
ments set forth in the brief and that is cer- 
tainly a major point.” 

Missouri’s Robertson expressed the opi- 
nion of the majority of attorneys general 
who signed the brief, saying that “copyright 
law is so far behind technology at present 
that it comes as no surprise that an appeals 
court would apparently ignore, in my opi- 
nion, certain (copyright) tenets. Hopefully, 
the Supreme Court will correct that, 
however.” 

Legal Precedent? 

Like many attorneys who believe there is 
some legal support for a home use video 
taping exemption, EIA/CEG counsel Day 
points to a court of claims case for 
reproducing medical journals as at least a 
partial precedent. He also noted that the 
Supreme Court "hasn’t heard a con- 
tributory copyright infringement case since 
1911.” 

“We’d like to see the Copyright Law 
amended and the issue of ‘fair use’ 
clarified," said Day. "That is our ultimate 
aim. And it’s our feeling, or at least hope, 
that the Supreme Court would pick it up 
because they would want to have federal 
law on a uniform basis as much as possible. 

“Even if the Supreme Court does decide 
to hear the case, though, that’s only half the 
battle," he concluded. 


MYSTERIOUS X-RAY — Capitol recording artist Moon Martin recently finished a

Light/Lexicon Scores Big In 1981

Amazin g Grace 
An Album of 
Strong Emotions 



LIBERTY 

© 1982 LIBERTY RECORDS, a division of Capitol 
Records, Inc. All Rights Reserved. 


NASHVILLE — Light Records/Lexicon 
Music experienced its most significant year 
in 1981 with a marked increase in revenues; 
complete acquisition of all controlling com- 
pany interests and the announcement of a 
national, secular outlet-oriented distribu- 
tion deal with Elektra/Asylum Records, ac- 
cording to company president Ralph Car- 
michael. 

Revenues for the year reached $5.7 
million, an increase of nearly 30% over the 
$4.4. million generated in 1980, said ex- 
ecutive vice president, Larry Jordan. In ad- 
dition, first quarter 1981 sales continued at 
a rate 15% ahead of the same quarter last 
year. 

"We’re forecasting an increase of total 
revenues to $8 million for 1982, some 
where around 40%, ” Jordan said. "This is in 
today’s economy without a projected in- 
crease in album prices beyond $7.98. We 
plan to hold to $7.98 through 1982.” 

Light’s distribution deal with E/A com- 
menced Feb. 1 with an initial release of 45 
titles shipped to secular outlets. The initial 
release included 25 titles at $7.98, 18 


midlines at $5.98 and two double-record 
albums by Andrae Crouch at $1 1 .98. 

“Our association with E/A means a 
greater platform with a broader base from 
which to service the church,” said Car- 
michael. “Our desire to be in the secular 
marketplace is not prompted by the 
assumption that suddenly we are going to 
sell gospel records to the unchurched. The 
fact of the matter is, Christians frequent the 
marketplace." 

Carmichael also added that Light 
Records and its sales force would be work- 
ing even harder with the Bible bookstores. 
Light Records was the first gospel record 
company to add a $5.98 midline and $3.88 
super-saver line to its regular $7.98 
product available only at Bible bookstores. 

Meadowgreen To Work 
Zondervan Catalog 

NASHVILLE — Meadowgreen Music, Inc., a 
gospel music publishing company affiliated 
with Tree International, has finalized 
negotiations to further develop and 
promote all copyrights now published by 
the Zondervan Corp.

Retail Involvement 

(continued from page 5) 

and a streamer poster emphasizing the 
Real Deal artists are included. 

More specific merchandising tools for 
ma and pa dealers included a 22-song 
album sampler mixed for in-store play, 
featuring a key cut from each LP in the 
program; plastic album-size polybags; and 
a merchandising brochure featuring pic- 
tures and background information on the 
artists, which can be used as bag stuffers or 
point-of-purchase pick ups. 

Artists included in the RCA promotion 
are Diana Ross, Chocolate Milk, Skyy, the 
Chi-Lites, Evelyn King, the Whispers, Ins- 
tant Funk, Aurra, Merge, War, Pleasure, - 
Shalamar, plus forthcoming product by 
Salsoul Orchestra, Cameron and the 
Ritchie Family. RCA's $6.98 Red Seal 
product included in the campaign includes 
LPs by Michael Wycoff, Merge, Steven and 
Sterling, Wynd Chymes, Fredi Grace and 
Rhinstone and Plush. 

Other labels are also aware of the impor- - 
tance of black retail outlets and are 
developing Black Music Month campaigns 
designed to encourage their participation. 

At MCA, though plans are still being 
developed, at least nine artists will be 
featured in a variety of regional campaigns 
that will use product tie-ins with local 
businesses as well as radio/retail contests 
and normal in-store merchandising and 
advertising. 

Elmer Hill, director of black music 
promotion at the label said that concept 
promotion tie-ins and contests would be 
employed locally among black dealers and 
radio to build the acts’ identity. 

Hill cited MCA artists One Way and new 
group Louisiana Connection as examples 
of acts who will be supported with regional 
campaigns during the June promotion. 

Regional Push 

He added that regional efforts promoting 
MCA product with tie-ins to Black Music , 
Month allow the company to determine 
what promotions can be waged nationally 
through the balance of June and the sum- 
mer. "Black retailers serve as a barometer - 
for what concepts the consumer is recep- 
tive to,” according to Hill. 

Hill also said that MCA may bow a con- 
test with black radio in which listeners call r 
in and try to guess the identity of a famous 
black historical or cultural figure based on , 
clues offered over the air. He said that 
prizes would probably come from MCA’s r 
deep catalog of R&B and jazz product. 

“It’s more meaningful to tie in our promo- 
tions around these kind of contests if we 
plan to use Black Music Month in our f 
promotional campaign,” explained Hill, 
who added, “It has more historical and , 
cultural significance than just selling 
records.” 

Bill Haywood, senior vice president of 
black music marketing at PolyGram, also 
stressed the cutural importance of black 
music. “With our artist roster weighted ^ 
heavily toward black acts, promoting that 
product is a full-time thing,” he said. “But I 
feel Black Music Month gives us an oppor- 
tunity to talk about the history of the - 
product and tell the public what the music 
means culturally.” 

For that reason, the PolyGram labels' 
Black Music Month promotions will run 
concurrently with campaigns featuring the 
company’s catalog with current hot product 
by such acts as the Gap Band, Junior, 
Cameo and upcoming LPs from The Fat- .r 
back Band, Stephanie Mills and Robert 
“Goodie” Whitfield. 

Haywood said that in addition to print 
and radio spots and in-store signage tagg- 
ing Black Music Month, all of which he said 
is part of normal marketing efforts.

Flood Of Big Country Acts’ 
Singles Crowds Out Indies 


by Tom Roland 

NASHVILLE — While country radio stations 
have tightened their playlists within the past 
year (Cash Box, Nov. 21, 1981), the major 
labels have cut down the release time be- 
tween records on major artists. As a result, 
some artists have more than one record out 
at a time, resulting in a domination of a dis- 
proportionate number of positions on 
playlists by a handful of acts, and subse- 
quently, many have begun to fear that the 
future of new artists looks bleak, especially 
■ in comparison with the past two years. 

As a “go-for-all-you-can-get” attitude 
has infiltrated many labels in the face of 
poor economic conditions, the release time 
between major records has been cut from 
what one industry official said used to be six 
to eight weeks following a single’s peak 
down to two or three weeks on the average, 
and, in some cases, the follow-up record 
has been released while the artist is still in 
the Top 10. Though the practice has not 
become as exaggerated as with pop radio, 
the effect has been to stifle independent 
product and, in some cases, steadily 
progressing artists who are close to break- 
ing into major status. 

RCA, in particular, last week released the 
latest singles by Alabama and Dolly Parton 
while their previous releases still held down 
positions in the Top 10 on the Cash Box 
country singles chart. According to Joe 
Galante, vice president of marketing for the 
label’s Nashville division, the early release 
was enacted to meet demand for the 
records, which were already being played 
as album cuts on pop and country stations 
alike. 

While some say that such a practice will 
lead to oversaturation by the acts, Galante 
maintains that the release will have little ef- 
fect outside of coordinating RCA’s push. 
“How long would we have held it?” he 
asked. "Another week? I don’t think two 
weeks is going to oversaturate at this point. 
It’s the kind of thing where we got requests 
on both singles. The Alabama record's 
been forced out of the album earlier than 
we would have liked. In terms of where they 
‘ are, both projects could have been held a 
few more weeks, but we’ve got about 30 
pop stations on the Take Me Down’ cut 
already, and we've got country stations 
, programming it like the national anthem. 
So, in order not to wind up with that burn- 
out, we decided to release the singles 
quickly to take advantage of the early air- 
1 play. It’s done all the time in rock ’n’ roll — 
you can get three records by an artist at one 
time.” 

Such tactics have been used in pop, 
most notably by the Bee Gees in recent 
years, who strung their singles together 
back-to-back on the Saturday Night Fever 
and "Spirits Having Flown” albums, but 
met with somewhat of a backlash with 
their latest release. “You’re talking about 

First American In 
Picadilly Promo Push 

LOS ANGELES — First American Records 
has embarked on a large-scale 
promotional and marketing push for its 
mid-priced Piccadilly line. Under thetheme 
“Piccadilly Pick A Winner," the company 
campaign will include distribution incen- 
i tives along with such in-store merchandis- 
ing materials as Piccadilly posters, 
streamers and trim fronts. 

The push, which will continue throughout 
> this month, will focus on LPs by such artists 
as Patsy Cline, George Jones, Leon 
Russell, Lee Morgan, Don Cherry, Anthony 
Braxton, Big Joe Williams and Bill Deal, 
among others. In addition, a new big band 
line featuring releases by Claude Thornhill, 
Ray Anthony, Jimmy Dorsey and Enoch 
Light will also be showcased. 


consistently doing that,” noted Galante of 
the Gibb clan's recent disappointment, 
“and I’m talking about one record. In both 
cases (Alabama and Parton), because of 
the pop response, because of the country 
response, the tour and the TV they have, 
there are a number of circumstances that 
indicate that that record should be out now. 
At the same time on Dolly, Dolly’s getting 
ready to go out and start touring. We had 
the album out on the streets, the other 
single started burning out, and we’ve gotten 
a lot of response on this one. We have a 
movie coming out with her in The Best Little 
Whorehouse, and in order to get enough 
product out there — I'm looking toward the 
entire year — we had to get this thing going, 
it's not a decision made to do it now just 
because we’ve got nothing else to put out 
there. We’re looking at the continuity of the 
artist over the year, and 1 don’t think we're 
oversaturating at all at this point." 

At the same time, Galante recognizes the 
heavy amount of product on the streets 
from major artists, and he also recognizes 
the inherent danger it may pose to develop- 
ing artists, but he maintains that "the better 
record's going to survive anyhow, whether 
a better record is on a new artist or a major 
artist. I can see the flood of new product, I 
can see the concern, but right now I think 
it's a tough business out there, and I think 
everybody's trying to get the biggest share 
of the pie they possibly can.” 

As a result, playlists are chocked full of 
major artists and devoid of space for the 
large number of independents that are 
looking for a break. While independent 
promoter Bob Saporiti noted that the in- 
dependent labels were being squeezed out 
of holes they used to fill in the music rota- 
tion, he added that the long-run effects of 
heavy release schedules would be born by 
the major artists themselves. 

"The artists are the ones who are going to 
suffer," he claimed. “They're going to burn 
out. Marketing people fear Kenny Rogers 
records because they’re so burnt out on 
him. They're not crazy about getting Kenny 
Rogers records anymore because there 
are so many of them out, and they come so 
fast with no time in between that it's hard to 
market them. There's a burn-out factor in 
everything, and eventually, take a Johnny 
Lee, who keeps putting out the same song 
over and over again, you’re going to burn 
out." 

According to Saporiti, label prestige 
has made it even more difficult for the in- 
dependents, and, he said, that was eviden- 
ced when an indie label and a major record 
company both recently released covers of 
the same song. He claimed he was told 
many times by station MDs that the in- 
dependent product was better, but the ma- 
jor’s single ended up on the charts anyway. 
"We couldn’t fight the fact that people are 
more interested in the color of the label 
than what’s in the grooves," he lamented.

GIFT IDEAS — Available from the National Assn, of Recording Merchandisers (NARM) 
are new “Gift of Music” merchandising aids. These include generic fiats and border 
strips in silver, blue and white; generic die-cut logos and slogans; paper banners; and 
title strips. All material is free, freight collect, from NARM, P.O. Box 1970, Cherry Hill, 
N.J. 08034. Information is available by calling Jane Gallo at (609) 795-5555. 

COVER GIRL — Cash Box April 10 cover artist Deniece Williams recently visited the 
cosmetics counters at major department stores in Miami, Charlotte, N.C., New York, 
Memphis and New Orleans under the auspices of black cosmetics manufacturer Flori 
Roberts Inc. and Columbia Records. Black & White photos were provided for 
autographing, and 20 fans won copies of the current “Niecy" album. Williams’ ap- 
pearances were part of Flori Roberts' ongoing program feting major black performers, 
which in the past honored such artists as Eartha Kitt. 

‘HOOKED ON ELLINGTON’ — To honor the late Duke Ellington's birthday, RCA 
Records handed out 300 promotional singles excerpting in nine-and-a-half minutes 
each of the 34 songs on the label’s original cast recording of Sophisticated Ladies at a 
party held April 28 in Schubert Alley. The party took place a day earlier than Duke’s 
birthday, due to an “I Love New York” celebration slated for the Alley on the 29th. Flyers 
handed out at the festivities directed those who didn’t get the souvenir 45 to three King 
Karol stores, where more were available, as were specially-priced copies of the 
Sophisticated Ladies double-album. 

FAIR GAME — Show Industries in Los Angeles recently held its first video game fair at 
its City One-Stop. On hand were all the major game manufacturers with displays of 
their wares, promotional literature and point-of-purchase materials. Some 75 one- 
stop accounts showed up for fun and games, and so far 25 have either placed orders or 
are committed to do so. Lou Fogelman, president of Show Industries, says that approx- 
imately 30 accounts had already moved into the video game market and are very 
pleased by the results. Consequently, the one-stop is getting more involved in the 
business, citing games for providing big help to small retailers during these tough 
economic times. 

THE WAYS OF WEA — WEA recently held a Richard Pryor contest for field merchan- 
disers, sales and promotion people to encourage cross promotions at theaters showing 
Pryor’s pic, Live On The Sunset Strip. All entries had to include at least 10 photos of 
theater displays, the best earning the grand prize two-day trip for two to Baton Rouge, 
La., and a walk-on part in Pryor’s new movie, The Toy, filming there through the end of 
May. . ."Solar Creates Energy” is the title of a promotion launched at 18 R&B retail out- 
lets in Philadelphia by the WEA Philadelphia branch, Elektra, and WDAS/FM in support 
of Solar label albums by Shalamar, Lakeside and Whispers. The winner of a random 
drawing receives a $500 check payable to his utility company, while the store owner 
with the best in-store merchandising campaign gets a similar check for $300. . .Among 
winners of the recent Sister Sledge Merchandising Blitz contest was Kandy Jones of 
the Dallas Branch for her display in a men’s washroom in Dallas. Jones won her award 
in the non-record store category, and WEA insists that her display consisted of the nor- 
mal posters and Ixl's. . .WEA and Warner Bros. Records, in conjunction with New York 
station WBLS-FM and 17 retailers in New York and New Jersey, is exploiting Al 
Jarreau’s two Grammy awards by holding “The Al Jarreau/Norwegian Cruise 
Lines/Breakin’ Away Contest.” Each store will select five winners from random draw- 
ings to award a "Breakin’ Away” album or cassette. All of the ballot boxes will then be 
collected after May 17 and sent to WBLS and on May 21, Frankie Crocker will draw the 
grand prize winner during his show. The Norwegian Cruise Lines will provide the grand 
prize winner with a one-week cruise for two aboard its N/S Skyward, which sails from 
Maimi to Cancun, Mexico, and stops in Playa del Carmen, Cozumel and the Out Islands. 
LESS I.R.S. — I.R.S. Records starts off its first midline series on May 25. Albums and 
cassettes of two releases by TheBuzzcocks — “Singles Going Steady" and “A Different 
Kind Of Tension" — will be stickered with “Midline Series $5.98 — cheaper” labels.

Special Promotions Spark 
Sales Over Mother’s Day 


(continued from page 6) 

“Ironically, it was the best weather of the 
year for us, with temperatures in the '80s 
and no rain for the first weekend in a 
month.” Instead of shopping for records, 
however, consumers chose to enjoy the 
sun. 

Larry Mundorf, vice president, retail, at 
the 196-unit, North Canton, Ohio-based 
Stark/Camelot chain, also blamed good 
weather in the northern and midwestern 
outlets for a sales gain under 10% during 
Mother’s Day weekend. Sales in southern 
stores, however, "cooked pretty good," he 
said. 

Mundorf said that for the second year the 
chain distributed Camelot pocket calen- 
dars that identify all major and minor holi- 
days as 1 0% discount days. “We target our 
promotions three or four days ahead of 
holidays to tie-in with the calendar,” he ex- 
plained. “Then on the fifth day, which is the 
holiday, we give 10% discounts. We dis- 
tributed half a million calendars last 
December and January, and we have 
received good response from consumers, 
who retain them and are aware of the holi- 
day discounts because of them.” 

To further promote Mother’s Day, 
Stark/Camelot took out a chainwide ad on 
May 6 tying-in current product with gift- 
giving. Mundorf reported that new releases 
by Paul McCartney, Human League, 
Alabama, Asia, Joan Jett, Willie Nelson, 
Toto and the soundtracks to Chariots of 
Fire and Annie were among the top sellers. 
Country product also sold big, with the 
chain in the midst of a “Country Month” sale 
affecting the entire country music depart- 
ment. Mundorf further noted a direct 
correlation with the country product and 
the Mother's Day buyer. 

Otti Schmitt, director of operations at the 
25-store, Lanham, Md. -based Harmony 
Hut chain, said that the weekend was “very 
good,” due largely to heavy promotion. The 
chain advertised the giveaway of a “Happy 
Mother’s Day” pocketbook mirror with 
purchase of an English novelty hit single 
from a few years ago entitled “Grandma I 
Love You.” In addition, 11”x14" signs were 
created to picture a sailor’s flexed arm tat- 
tooed with “I Love Mom.” The signs were fit- 


ted with sale album jackets and hung from 
the ceiling. The sales albums were by ar- 
tists “more oriented to moms,” such as Guy 
Lombardo, the Carpenters and light 
rockers. 

Gift Of Music 

Several Mother’s Day promotions tied-in 
with the National Assn, of Record Merchan- 
disers (NARM) “Give the Gift of Music” 
campaign. The Camelot calendars carry 
the theme, informing the consumer that 
every holiday is an appropriate gift-giving 
time and that the Gift of Music is the way to 
go. Record Bar’s King said that his chain 
used the Gift of Music campaign in its ads, 
which were directed mostly at “MOR and 
cosmopolitan-type” places where holidays 
like Mother’s Day are special. “Instead of a 
standard ad like ‘Give the gift of music to 
your mother,' we tried to come up with off- 
beat twists on the idea, more like ‘You tried 
giving her roses, try giving her music,’ ” said 
King. 

King added that the NARM program has 
made Record Bar award of gift-giving 
periods. “We never tracked Mother’s Day 
until the Gift of Music campaign,” he said. 
Russ Solomon, president of the 30-store 
Sacramento, Calif. -based Tower Records, 
hoped that the Gift of Music campaign 
would stimulate more Mother's Day record 
buying in the future. “The real effort hasn’t 
begun,” said Solomon, noting that it will 
take a year for the campaign's new adver- 
tising firm to formulate a program. 

Solomon reported a slight pickup in 
sales during Mother’s Day weekend, but 
was unsure about whether it is a records 
holiday. “It depends on your mother,” he 
noted, adding that for a child to buy his 
mother a record, the mother would likely be 
over 35 and “not part of the classic record 
buying profile.” George Balicky, vice presi- 
dent of merchandising at the 75-store, 
Pittsburgh-based National Record Mart 
chain, was also unsure, saying the Mother’s 
Day weekend was somewhat better than 
the week before, but for a different reason. 
“New releases are moving,” he said, “but 
you can’t credit mom.” 

Another retailer who was not totally 
enamored of Mother’s Day, at least in terms

Unique ‘Chariots’ Promotion

general retail accounts. The letter effusively 
praised Vangelis and noted that his theme 
music was used by ABC-TV in promoting its 
World Series and New York Marathon 
coverage. The mailing followed by one 
week a similar one sent to major market 
news and sports TV stations that included 
the album instead of the single and sug- 
gested that it be used for local programm- 
ing. 

On Nov. 9, during a reshuffling of upper 
level management at PolyGram, Bob Ed- 
son came in as vice president, promotions, 
and Bill Cataldo entered as director, 
national promotion. Cataldo brought the 
Chariots Of Fire theme to Edson. “I loved 
the song,” said Cataldo, "and I knew Bob 
was a runner. So I told him the story line, 
and he loved it.” 

“It was the end of the year," recalled Ed- 
son. "We had little product to work with. We 
heard it, believed in it and set out.” 

Edson recalled the initial radio reaction 
to the record: “First of all, stations didn't 
know how to pronounce Vangelis. Then it 
was an unusually strange sounding record 
— no one knew how to format it, even 
though a lot of programmers thought it was 
beautiful. So we started working A/C and 
began to build it station by station. Every 
week we’d get one add, then two adds, then 
three." 

In November, the film opened in five

more cities and generated the same sales 
pattern. PolyGram's branch sales, 
merchandising, and promotion teams tied- 
in with everything remotely related to the 
film, pushing the music to the point where 
fashion designers began using it in their 
shows. The label even bought immediate 
TV time in the markets where the film was 
being shown. 

By the end of the year, the album had 
reached #67 with a bullet, while the single 
was bulleted at #72. Shelly Rudin, vice 
president, sales, said that the album demo- 
graphics cut across all ages and areas 
and that retail chains were merchandis- 
ing it in both their pop/rock and classical 
departments and bringing in customers 
that hadn’t bought records in a long time. 

According to Randy Roberts, national 
singles director, the single was selling 
steadily but slowly due to spotty airplay. 
“The movie was released nationally in 
January and February,” said Roberts. 
“Since I work so close to Bob Edson and Bill 
Cataldo, I knew immediately where they 
were getting airplay and was able to get the 
single out in time. Then a month before the 
Academy Awards, the awareness of the 
movie, the album sales, the cross- 
merchandising, display contests, tie-ins, 
word of mouth and airplay all came 
together to bring in the singles buyers. Win- 
ning the Oscars made the singles sales 
skyrocket to where we're now approaching 
800,000. If I'd have told you this record 
would go #1 a year ago, you’d have said I 
was crazy!” 

The promotion department finally saw 
the album explode in January when there 
were suddenly 50 adds in one week. “This 
promotion was our first project,” noted Bill 
Cataldo. “To bring a left field record like 
Chariots all the way home like this is un- 
believable. And since January 1 , we’ve had 
five top breaker singles leading off with 
Vangelis, which got the momentum going, 
and continuing with Bob & Doug McKenzie, 
Kool & The Gang, Dr. Hook and John 
Cougar.” 

An added bonus to the success of 
Chariots Of Fire is its effect on Vangelis’ 
career in the U.S. According to Jerry Jaffe, 
vice president of PolyGram’s rock music 
department, the "Friends of Mr. Cairo” Jon 
& Vangelis I P. which sold 100,000 albums 
the first time around, has just been re- 
released and repackaged to include the 
new single ‘Til Find My Way Home.” The 
single is being worked heavily on both AOR 
and Top 40. 

“We are now able to spread Vangelis’ 
base,” said Jaffe. He added that the song 
“State Of Independence,” also from the 
album, will be on Donna Summer's new 
album and that Jon Anderson will perform 
it, “I’ll Find My Way Home” and “Friends Of 
Mr. Cairo” during his tour this July. 

Concluded Harry Losk, “Not only did we 
do good business on Chariots Of Fire, but 
we established Vangelis as a potential ma- 
jor artist here.”

GOODBYE TO ALL THAT — WABC/New York, Top 40 pioneer and #1 music station in 
America between 1964 and 1972, officially changed over to a talk outlet at noon, May 
10. The station had been losing in the numbers game ever since FM rock came into its 
own in the early 70s. The advent of the disco era and subsequent growth of the urban 
contemporary format was the straw that finally broke the camel’s back. “It was a com- 
bination of things that did us in,” remarked veteran WABC air personality Ron Lundy. 
“Yeah, FM rock was part of it, but I think disco was what put the nail in the coffin.” The 
station did end its tradition with style. After the usual morning drive-time Ross & Wilson 
Show, Ludy and fellow veteran DJ Dan Ingram hosted a special three-hour retrospec- 
tive show. During the first two hours, the duo played songs from the station’s regular 
playlist and reminisced over the air about their respective 22 and 1 7 years at the station, 
reiterating that this was a beginning, and not the end, for WABC. Between 11 a.m. and 
noon, the pair played a Stars On 45-type medley of songs from 1961 until the present, 
beginning with such tunes as the Drifters’ “Up On The Roof,” feeding into a Beatles 
medley and cuts from songs popular in the late ’60s, This lasted until 1 1 :30. During the 
second half-hour, the duo began with a medley of the early ’70s tunes like Paul 
McCartney's "Uncle Albert/Admiral Walsey.” progressing to the mid-and-late-’70s. 
They finally brought it up to date. At noon, Ingram sounded the tape call. “This is 
probably the last time I can say this,” he said over the air. “This is WABC/New York.” Af- 
terwards, the pair went into a newly-constructed studio to be guests on Speak Out, the 
talk show hosted by WABC news director Art Athens. The two spoke briefly about their 
careers, after which the rest of the WABC/Talkradio crew was introduced to the listen- 
ing public. What of the WABC disc jockeys? Ingram said Lundy will join ABC’s 
Superadio network, making its air debut over the July 4 weekend. Ross & Wilson will 
contin ue to do morning drive. The one disaffected DJ is Bruce Morrow, aka Cousin 

Brucie, who currently works for a group 
of radio stations headquartered in New 
Jersey. Unfortunately, Airplay was un- 
able to reach the cousin at presstime. 
NETWORK NEWS — Mutual 
Broadcastings’ The Dick Clark National 
Music Survey, a weekly three-hour 
music program highlighting one week’s 
top recording artists (based on the Cash 
Box charts) has added A/C outlet 
WYNY/New York to its roster of af- 
filiates. The show will air each Sunday 
night between 7 and 10 p.m. . .Mutual is 
also planning a country music special 
over the memorial day weekend cen- 
tered around Columbia recording artist 
Crystal Gayle, Capitol recording artist 
Anne Murray and RCA recording artist 
Ronnie Miisap. The three-hour inter-

to join ABC Superadio, the 24-hour-a-day satellite-fed network that debuts the July 4

beyond our control,” Frank Murphy, vice president, marketing, United Stations, told 
Airplay that the 24-hour-a-day country music network will not premiere June 1 , as had 
been originally planned. Murphy could not predict when the web could finally make its 
air debut, 

STATION TO STATION — In a unique promotion, classical music station KFAC/Los 
Angeles is asking its listeners to send in their favorite classical compositions on 
postcards or on ballots printed in the Los Angeles Times. By voting in the marathon, 
listeners become eligible for prizes including a round trip to London and box seats for 
an upcoming Stravinsky series at the Hollywood Bowl. The contest ends May 30 and the 
top 40 selections will be broadcast commercial-free from 12:01 a.m. to midnight June 
12. . ,A/G outlet KRLY-FM/Houston received a Bronze award in the TV commercial 
division of the 1982 Houston International Film Festival Awards. The winning commer- 
cial was a 10-second spot featuring The Love Machine, an all-female dance troupe 
sponsored by the station. What happens in the commercial, which was produced by 
Cary Griffin Prods., is that seven Love Machine members are dressed as secretaries at 
work. When asked, “do you wanna squeeze a little love into your life?” they grimace. 
But, through special effects, they re-appear in wild and sexy dance outfits, drop their 
glasses and dance around their typewriters. The male voice-over then says, “’cause 
Love makes the world go round.” Hope Ms. Magazine doesn't find out about this 
one. . .In the Nation’s Capital, Top 40 outlet WRQX is offering its listeners a chance to 
win thousands of dollars in cash, Beatles “Reel Music” T-shirts, other Beatles 
memorabilia and a chance to go to England for a “Magical Mystery Tour” of the places 
in London and Liverpooi where the Fab Four became legends. To enter, listeners can 
go to any of 107 participating Washington D.C. record stores, pick up an entry blank 
and fill in titles of any Beatles song heard on the station, in addition to time and date they 
were played. Winners will be drawn Friday, May 21. . .In Philadelphia, AOR outlet WIOQ 
has done some shuffling with its air staff. Veteran Philiy jock Ed Sciaky moves into the 
morning drive slot, while David Dye takes over the afternoon drive period to help ex- 
pand the station’s news and information offerings. 

ON THE OTHER HAND ... — While music outlet WABC was switching to ail-talk, 
KMPC/Los Angeles was planning to switch to MOR music via Drake-Chenault’s “Hit 
Parade” format. The format is a mixture of non-rock hits of the ’50s and ’60s, as weli as 
“compatible” music of the 70s. It premieres Monday, May 17. In keeping with this for- 
mat change, the station has also shaken up its programming staff and on-air talent 
pool. For one thing, assistant PD John Felz has been moved up to PD. And Eric Tracy, 
former afternoon drive personality at KSFO/San Francisco, Larry McKay, former after- 
noon personality at KFI/Los Angeles, and Deanna Crowe, former midnight personality 
at KLAC/Los Angeles, are joining the air staff at KMPC. larry riggs

at a gala party at Max's 151 nightclub in Los Angeles. Dyson, whose new single "Heart To 
Heart" emanates from his first Cotillion LP, "Phase 2," was joined by many old and new 
friends, including fellow label performers Sister Sledge. Pictured standing are (l-r): Gary 
Livingston; KGFJ promotion director Denise Smith; Debbie Sledge; Hal Jackson, owner of 
KUTE and KGFJ; Dyson; Kathy Sledge; Kim Sledge; Hank Caldwell, vice president, black 
music marketing, WEA; Kimu Kelly, merchandiser, WEA; Joni Sledge; and Marty Mack, 
West Coast R&B promo director, Atlantic. Pictured seated is Rick Holmes, KJLH MD. 


THE RHYTHM SECTION 


BLACK RECORD RETAILERS — Dubbed “Survival: Expand The Black Music Market," 
the upcoming Black Music Assn. (BMA) conference slated for June 2-6 in New Orleans 
will address a variety of issues pertaining to further improving the prosperity of black 
music. Areas of concern range from expanding the number of black-owned or black 
oriented stations to forging deeper penetration into the international marketplace. 
BMA executive director George Ware recently said that each of the areas covered dur- 
ing the festival's “summit” panels will not only present information illuminating the 
problems, but also offer solutions. Ware said, however, that perhaps the most sub- 
stative proposal will be the unveiling of a special program to improve conditions for the 
industry’s black retailers. The program will be presented by veteran black retailer Ted 
Hudson of Hudson’s Embassy in St. Louis, who convinced the BMA board of directors 
of the need for such a program, which addresses many of the problems faced by the 
small black dealer today. “I plan to use Ted Hudson as a role model for how to get things 
done,” Ware said, adding, “When he joined the board he saw that there was not enough 
attention paid to the concerns of black retailers. But instead of grumbling, complaining 
or getting disgusted, Ted developed a program that the other directors voted to ap- 
prove.” The BMA black retailer program would help black record retailers organize 
cooperatives; provide technical assistance in the areas of inven- 
torying/bookkeeping/management; make efforts to improve credit relations; and ex- 
plore workable solutions to financing and cash-flow problems. The program, according 
to Ware, will begin in seven markets around the U.S. Additional details of the programs 
and the cities they would be offered in will be revealed at the conference, Ware said. The 
BMA plans to use the collective resources of the National Assn, of Recording Merchan- 
disers, manufacturers, financial institutions and government agencies to get the 
program off the ground. 

A&M AMERICA — Jeffrey Osborne, the former lead singer with LTD will have his self- 
titled debut LP for A&M records premiered on the airwaves May 22, during an in-studio 
session with KDAY air personality J.J. Johnson. The broadcast will come from the A&M 
lot in Los Angeles, where Johnson will interview Osborne while playing selections from 
his upcoming LP, including the current single “I Really Don’t Need No Light,” now #25 
bullet on the Cash Box B/C Top 100 Singles chart. The two-hour show will be recorded 
for a number of radio stations around the country. The premiere idea is the joint 
brainchild of Jheryl Busby, vice president of black music promotion at A&M, and 
Johnson. Other stations wishing to carry the special premiere should contact their local 
A&M field reps or Busby at the A&M headquarters in Los Angeles. 

SUMMER SOUL ‘82 — R&B artist Peabo Bryson and gospel artist Edwin Hawkins were 
recently named as hosts of the upcoming Nashville Music Assn.’s SummerSoul '82, a 
black talent search/showcase set for June 25-26 at the Tennessee Performing Arts 
Center. Bryson will host the black contemporary showcase while Hawkins will be the 
host of the gospel portion of the program. Additionally, Bill Haywood, senior vice presi- 
dent of black music marketing at PoiyGram Records, and Buddy Huey, vice president 
and general manager of Priority Records were recently added to the list of honorary 
chairpersons. Judges for the black contemporary portion of the talent hunt include: 
Charles Fach, Musicverse; Brad Shapiro, producer; Chuck Mims, independent 
promotion; Tom Long. Tree Publishing; Wade Conklin, promotions, Casablanca 
Records, Thomas Cain, artist/songwriter; Steve Buckingham, producer; Moses 
Dillard, Dillard Music Group; and Gary Beatty, assistant program director at SM-95. 
Judges for the gospel talent search include Bill Allen, WLAC radio personality; Gentry 
McCreary, director of black marketing, the Benson Company; Ken Harding, director of 
A&R, Word Records; Bobby Jones, recording artist and television personality; Don 
Butler, executive director of the Gospel Music Assn.; Clarence Kilcrease, general 
manager of gospel programming, WVOL Radio; Shannon Williams, president of Black 
Label Records; Jerry Thomas, black promotions, the Benson Company; Nancy 
Nepola, the Benson Company; Jay Griffith, national director of marketing, Priority 
Records; and Dillard. 

SHORT CUTS — Solid Smoke Recordscontinues to resurrect soul musicfrom the'40s, 
'50s and ’60s with release of three new projects from the R&B archives. The Bay Area- 
based label will issue “No Man Is An Island." a 14-song collection by Texas ’60s 
soulsters the Van Dykes. Also due from Solid Smoke is “Chi-Town Showdown,” which 
features music by the Esquires (produced by Bunky Sheppard) and the Marvalows 
with six songs produced by Johnny Pate. Finally there is an 1 3-song LP by seminal ’50s 
group The Flamingos, titled "Golden Teardrops.”. . .Veteran R&B artist Johnny Otis 
will do a spot on the Today Show on NBC-TV and talk about his life as a performer, as 
the minister at a community church in Los Angeles and about re-entering the entertain- 
ment business as an artist on Alligator Records, which recently released his “The 
Johnny Otis Show" album . . . Saxophonist Joe Henderson's recently released Con- 
temporary Records album, "Relaxin’ At Camarillo,” recently received the Grand Prix du 
Disque as best Jazz Album of 1982 from the French Academie Charles Cros.

Flood Of Big Country Acts’

(continued from page 17) 



LEIGH READIES DEBUT ALBUM — Singer/songwriter Richard Leigh, best known for 
writing "Don't It Make My Brown Eyes Blue,” buried himself in the studio recently while 
completing work on his debut album for Liberty Records. "Don’t Shoot At Me (I’m On Your 
Side)” was the first single culled from the package. Pictured during a mixing session are (I- 
r): Lynn Schultz, vice president, Capitol/EMI America/Liberty in Nashville; Leigh; Don 
Grierson, vice president, A&R, EMI America/Liberty; and Allen Reynolds, producer. 

CBS To Distribute Country Medley LP 


"Some people felt obligated to play the 
record on the major label because of the 
pressure that was being put on them, 
pressure being whatever that means." 

He remains optimistic, however, that 
“well-heeled independents” still have a 
chance with some music directors. “I think 
there’s enough integrity in radio to still play 
the better records,” insists Saporiti. 
“There’s enough guys that have integrity, 
but some people are intimidated easier 
than others. I think the majors use real sub- 
tle forms of intimidation. I don’t think they 
actually go out and break arms, but I think 
they intimidate the hell out of people by 
threatening to cut off their record service or 
take away their reporting status.” 

Nick Hunter, director of country promo- 
tions at Elektra/Asylum, indicated that his 
label’s policy is to put out a follow-up single 
about two weeks after the prior single 
peaks nationally. The label released Con- 
way T witty's "Slow Hand” earlier than usual, 
however, in order to have their single at 
radio before MCA released its “Over Thirty” 
Twitty single. 

Hunter is not concerned with oversatura- 
tion. “If you’ll look at pop music," he said, 
"when it was in the same stage as country is 
in, you would see that as the charts change, 
there are a lot of stations that go on records 
later and the stations that go on them 
earlier go off of them earlier, so there’s 
room for them to go back on a major artist. 
It’s not unusual for pop records to be in the 
Top lOand come back in with a new record. 
Basically, we’re just following that same 
trend.” 

Hunter maintains that new artists will 
continue to emerge as long as their records 
can meet the standards set by the majors. 
“It might hurt the fringe records that are in 
the 80s or 90s that maybe 15 radio stations 
are playing,” he commented, “but there 
again, too, from the standpoint of a record 
that dies in the 80s, it isn’t really helping 
many people. We're all after hits, and, if a 
record isn’t a hit, they should go after the 
next record just like we should.” 

Kilroy Leaves 
Tree Publishing 

NASHVILLE — Producer Eddie Kilroy has 
left Tree International under what Tree of- 
ficials are calling "amicable terms” after 
Kilroy found that songs from outside 
sources were not being pitched to him 
because of his association with the 
publishing giant. 

According to Donna Hilley, a vice presi- 
dent with the company, “People thought he 
was tied to Tree” exclusively. Thus; other 
publishers were pitching fewer tunes to him 
to cut on his stable of artists, which curren- 
tly includes Dean Dillon, Gary Stewart, 
Louise Mandrell, R.C. Bannon and Red 
Steagall. Therefore, said Hilley, the split 
was not a result of differences between 
Kilroy and the Tree conglomerate, but 
rather a result of other publishers’ percep- 
tion of his role. 

Kilroy and Larry Butler had affiliated 
themselves with T ree as producers late last 
year (Cash Box, Nov. 14, 1981) in a move 
that caused much speculation among 
Music Row executives. Butler severed ties 
with the publishing firm in January (Cash 
Box, Jan. 16) to avoid the “details” 
associated with the corporate structure. 

Kilroy, who was on vacation in Texas and 
could not be reached for comment, will 
reportedly continue recording his artists at 
the Soundshop, owned by Tree president 
Buddy Killen. Currenty, Kilroy is working 
there with Red Steagall on a 20-cut televi- 
sion package. 


Erv Woolsey, vice president of country 
promotion for MCA, likewise felt that newer 
artists are not being cut off by the heavy 
releases of major product. “We had two 
new acts that had #1 records here recently 
— George (Strait) and Ricky (Skaggs) — 
and you've got the Corbin/Hanner Band. 
Let's face it, how many first releases crank 
up there? We’ve got 'Lonely Hearts’ by the 
Younger Brothers in the 60s. We may not 
have a hit record, but I guarantee you we've 
got something started with them. People 
will listen to them now when the next record 
comes in.” 

Skaggs and Strait were set up one year 
ago, however, and the artists who are just 
getting their first shots now may meet with a 
different condition at radio. “I think radio’s a 
little tighter now in just the last three 
months,” Woolsey said. “I don’t know if 
that’s because of the ratings, which, in a lot 
of major markets, are pretty continuous 
now, but I think country radio may be taking 
a real long look at what they are playing 
simply because of the competition from 
other formats and from other country sta- 
tions in their marketplace, too. I think 
they’re being real cautious. 

“In my mind, they don’t have as good of 
sales information as they did a few years 
ago either, because of the economy. A dis- 
tributor is not going to buy a new record un- 
til he gets calls on it, so one of the ways they 
can find out if they’ve got a hit record is 
almost taken away from them. But, I still 
think if you make a good record, you’re still 
going to get a chance. There are enough 
radio stations that will give you a shot with a 
record, and that’s really about all you can 
ask for.” 

At Capitol/EMI America/Liberty, that 
label was among the first to decrease 
release time when it began to hit with new 
Kenny Rogers and Anne Murray singles 
while the previous release was bulleting in 
the Top 1 0, but, according to national coun- 
try promotion director Gerri McDowell, that 
was due to poor communication between 
the pop and country divisions, who both 
reap benefits from the artists. The follow-up 
singles were released as the first record 
peaked on the pop chart, causing both pop 
and country stations to abandon the first 
record, cutting down the exposure time 
with country listeners. According to 
McDowell, however, “We learned from that 
problem in the past, and I don’t think that 
that will happen again.” 


NASHVILLE — Because of a heavy reaction 
in the Southeast, Southwest and Midwest to 
“Just Hooked On Country,” a two-sided 
release by Albert Coleman’s Atlanta Pops 
on the Southern T racks label, CBS Records 
has purchased the master from Bill Lowery 
Prods, for release on the Epic label. 

An instrumental medley of 17 country 
standards, including “Tennessee Waltz,” 
“Wabash Cannonball,” “Orange Blossom 
Special,” “Jambalaya,” “Your Cheatin’ 
Heart,” “Rocky Top,” "I Can’t Stop Loving 
You” and "You Are My Sunshine,” CBS has 
rush-released the single to pop, A/C and 
country-formatted radio stations. 

“We view it as a type of ‘Stars On 45’ con- 
cept, only for country music,” commented 
Rick Blackburn, senior vice president/- 
general manager, CBS/Nashville. 

According to Lowery, the idea was 
originally presented to him by Coleman 
near the end of 1981, but it took five months 
to negotiate with the publishers involved for 
a fixed rate. "It literally took off,” noted 
Lowery of the record, which was originally 
released through Southern Tracks. “We 
received major action and airplay in the 
Atlanta area, as well as Memphis, Kansas 
City, Houston and many secondary 
markets throughout the Southeast. WHN in 
New York has also taken this project on like 
a station promotion, designing a contest to 


find out which side of the record their 
audience wants to hear most. In terms of 
sales power, we sold some 20,000 copies in 
a matter of two weeks; from there, Epic 
Records picked it up.” 

“At this time, we have opted for an album 
that Coleman and his Atlanta Pops are 
currently in the process of putting together 
along the lines of the single,” added 
Blackburn. “If we do excercise this option, I 
think the record could additionally ex- 
perience a healthy life as a television 
package, and it’s the type of record that 
could do well internationally in such areas 
as Germany and England with its in- 
strumental approach.” 

Fan Fair Set For 
New Location 

NASHVILLE — Pre-registrants already 
number in excess of 13,000 for the 11th an- 
nual Fan Fair in Nashville, set to debut at the 
Tennessee State Fairgrounds June 7-13. 
The weeklong event is co-sponsored by the 
Country Music Assn. (CMA) and the Grand 
Ole Opry. 

In addition to access to a week of live 
shows and an exhibit area where artists will 
make themselves available to sign 
autographs, registrants will receive free 
tickets to the Country Music Hall of Fame, 
Opryland and the Ryman Auditorium. One- 
day tickets, which cannot be purchased in 
advance, have also been added for the first 
time, allowing attendees to pick particular 
label showcases that they wish to see. 

Registration for the week gets under way 
Monday, June 7, with an evening celebrity 
softball game at Greer Stadium, prior to the 
Nashville Sounds' baseball game. Opening 
ceremonies will be held the morning of 
June 8 with Nashville Mayor Richard Fulton 
and T ennessee Governor Lamar Alexander 
expected to attend. A songwriter’s show

THE COUNTRY MIKE 

COUNTRY FESTIVAL RAISES $1 MILLION PLUS — The second annual National Kid 
ney Foundation (NKF) Country Music Festival has raised $1 ,048,042 to date, and more 
is expected to come in, according to E. Burns McLindon, chairman for the organization 
The program was heard on some 287 country stations April 3-4 (Cash Box, Apr. 1 7) and 
included performances by the Oak Ridge Boys, Ronnie Milsap, Charley Pride, Terri 
Gibbs, David Frizzell & Shelly West, Razzy Bailey, Ricky Skaggs, Earl Thomas Conley 
and Don King, among others. Ralph Emery served as master of ceremonies, and 
Johnny and June Carter Cash acted as co-chairpersons for the event. “We are very 
grateful to the country music community, our national and local sponsors, the Country 
Music Assn. (CMA) and to all the volunteers of the National Kid- 
ney Foundation who made the 1982 festival a success,” said 
McLindon. “We have already begun planning for the third an- 
nual Country Music Festival in 1983 and look forward to an even 
bigger and more successful event. 

PERSONALITY PROFILE — He may be just 25 years old now, 
but Bob Cole is already an 1 1 -year veteran of the country radio 
industry, having started at the age of 14 as a go-fer for then 
country-formatted WWOK/Miami. After about one year, Mai 
Harrison gave the kid a chance, and Cole can still recall his first 
bit on the airwaves — “now showing at a theater near you.” 
From movie show tags, Cole progressed to doing the all-night show and spent four 
years programming his own show under the direction of program directorTed Cramer. 
Later, Cole was lured across town to A/C outlet WIOD, whose lineup included Larry 
King before he left Florida to join Chris Collier atKIKK/Houston. To reach his eventual 
goal of owning operating interest in a radio station — or chain of stations — Cole knew 
he had to get into programming, so when the opportunity presented itself to work the 
morning show and hold down PD chores at KOKE/Austin, Cole laid claim to the post, 
one which he held for nearly 1 0 years. He was recently named by Bill Sherard, general 
manager at WPKX/Washington, D.C., to take over the program director slot at that sta- 
tion. Cole was named medium market disc jockey of the year by the CMA in 1981 and in 
1982 in the Cash Box Programmer’s Choice awards. Mike Richardson will perform as 
interim PD at KOKE until a replacement can be found. 

JEFFRIES NAMED AT KXXY — Scott Jeffries has been named music director at new 
country station KXXY/OklahomaCity, which announced recently its adoption of the for- 
mat beginning June 1 (Cash Box, May 15). Jeffries will join program director Charlie 
Marcus May 24 and hold down the 6-10 p.m. slot as well. Jeffries leaves a similar post 
with WVOJ/Jacksonville. 

FOX TO HEAD PROMOTION AT KOMA — While Jeffries is headed for KXXY, 
crosstown rival KOMA has named Pamela Fox promotion director for the station. 
Working with PD Gregg Lindahl, Fox will handle all promotional aspects of the station, 
including playlist layout and distribution and coordination of promotion activities. Fox 
most recently served as program director at KWCO-KXXK/Chickasha, Okia. 

WJRB INSTRUMENTAL IN MILSAP SINGLE — Believe it or not, WJRB/Nashville was 
involved in the production of Ronnie Milsap's current single, “Any Day Now." While in 
final mixdown session for the single with producerTom Collins, Milsap called program 
director Don Keith and asked him to play the song so they could hear the mix over the 
AM airwaves. Keith agreed, and Milsap’s team ultimately decided on the mix present on 
the current release. 

WHK GIVEAWAYS — WHK/Cleveland has been involved heavily in giveaways recen- 
tly. The station gave over 3,000 free reserved tickets to the city’s first free “Country 
Spectacular Show,” which starred Bobby Bare, the Bellamy Brothers and Stella 
Parton, Tuesday, April 27 at the Front Row Theatre. During an overlapping period, the 
outlet also gave away $30,000, one grand at a time. Households in the area received ins- 
tant cash money tickets in their mail, and, when their number was given over the air, 
they were instructed to call in and claim their $1,000 prize. 

JAMBOREE U.S.A. TO FEATURE TALENT SEARCH WINNER — The Jamboree 
U.S.A., scheduled for July 17-18 in Wheeling, W.Va., will feature the winner of Jam- 
boree U.S.A.’s Starquest Talent Search, with 150 contestants named from some 20 
states. The eventual winner of the competition, who will be named June 23, will receive 
$400 and a 15-minute set during the Jamboree, which will include the likes of the 
Kendalls, Janie Fricke, Loretta Lynn, Eddy Raven, Leon Everette and Jerry Lee Lewis.

THE COUNTRY COLUMN 


TWITTY CITY OPENS IN HENDERSONVILLE — Conway Twitty s $3.5 million tourist 
attraction, Twitty City, officially opened to the public May 6 in the Nashville suburb of 
Hendersonville. The nine-acre facility offers country tourists an opportunity to gain a 
closeup view of Twitty’s new residence, plus the homes of his four children. Visitors to 
the complex are escorted through an elaborate visual presentation of the life of Twitty, 
including a dazzling multi-media production, a film clipping of the artist on a segment of 
Dick Clark’s American Bandstand show in the '50s and his classic T-bird. Additionally, 
the tour includes a trip to a lush garden area adjacent to the Twitty housing complexes. 
More than 400 attended a special preview of the Twitty City grounds May 5, and, 
although the attraction officially opened the following day, a grand opening push is 
planned to coincide with Fan Fair. Officials for the complex also indicate that more at- 
tractions are expected in the area (which also boasts Johnny Cash's House of Cash), in- 
cluding an early American shopping square and other country artist-funded, tourist- 
related enterprises. 

. . . AND IF THAT WASN’T ENOUGH — The advent of the Music Row tourist season 
(where else can one find camera-toting visitors in plaid bermuda shorts and bright 
orange knee-high socks?) is clearly upon Nashville. Not only has the Twitty site been 
unveiled just in time to attract the out-of-towners who annually flock to Music City by the 
millions, the number of buses outside the Country Hall of Fame has increased 
dramatically over the past few weeks. Visitors to the hall should expect to see a new ex- 
hibit entitled “The Styles Of Country Music," which was previewed to industry ex- 
ecutives May 6. The display, which includes fashions of many of the genre’s top perfor- 
mers, features clothing donated by Johnny Cash, Kenny Rogers, Ricky Skaggs and 
Hank Williams, Jr. 

WARINER KEYED UP ABOUT 
KANSAS CITY — It’s not hard to believe 
that Steve Warmer received an ex- 
tremely warm welcome in Kansas City 
recently, where he received two 
honorary keys to the city — one to 
Kansas City, Mo., arid one to its Kansas 
counterpart. Wariner spent two days in 
the midwestern metropolis, where he 
was scheduled for a date at the Kansas 
City Opry. To tie in with the RCA artist’s 
latest single, local station KFKF spon- 
sored a “See The Light Of Kansas City 
With Steve Wariner” contest, in which 
the winners received a pair of tickets to 
the show, a limousine tour of the city and 
dinner with Wariner and FM-94 person- 
nel. He was also interviewed on Channel 
5's Noon Edition , a midday entertain- 
ment program, where he was presented 



NOT EASY TO FORGET — Larry Gatlin (r) 
is acting as producer for the next album 
scheduled from Dottle West. West was the 
first artist to record a Gatlin-penned tune 
and provided him air fare to fly to Nashville 
when he was getting started. 

the aforementioned keys to K.C. The most flattering aspect of the short stay, however, 
was a proclamation by the city’s mayor, naming his current Kye Fleming-Dennis 
Morgan-penned single, “Kansas City Lights,” the city’s new official song. 

HITCHIN’ POST SITE FOR NEW TELEVISION PILOT — Springfield, Mo ’s Hitchin’ 
Post Lounge is the site of a new television series, Hitchin’ Post After Midnight, the pilot 
segment of which, featuring Reba McEntire, was shot May 8. Says the show’s executive 
producer, Don Keeslar, “This is the first time a country show wilt be filmed live in a 
lounge setting with real people, drinks on the tables and dancers doing the latest coun- 
try western dances.” The show is hosted by entertainer Nat Stuckey, who, for purposes 
of the telecast, has been assigned the title of “owner and resident star," and guest ar- 
tists are expected on a weekly basis. 

WATSON OPENS NASHVILLE OFFICE — Gene Watson and partner Larry Booth 

have opened the Nashville office of their publishing company, Booth and Watson 
Music, at 800 18th Avenue South. Dave Lindsey has been named Nashville rep for the 
firm, which can be reached via phone at (615) 242-5366. 

... AND SO DOES BRONCO BILLY’S — Bronco Billy’s, the club that recently opened in 
Jacksonville, N.C., has also opened a Nashville office to ease the facility’sworkload, ac- 
cording to president Jerry Peck. Beyond obtaining talent, the new office will also work 
with advance publicity on entertainers scheduled to play the facility and secure inter- 
views for Star Talk, a Bronco Billy’s-supported, syndicated radio show hosted by 
WRCM/Jacksonville program director Johnny West. Apparently, Peck is considering 
expansion of Bronco Billy’s into a national chain of nightclubs. 

ANOTHER MAVERICK — The next edition of the “Maverick” is neither a Ford 
automobile product, nor (sorry, Ed Bruce) a revived television show, but rather the next 
album due from Leon Everette. The Carolina-based artist just recently finished up the 
project, co-produced with Ronnie Dean, while in town to tape guest spots on Pop Goes 
The Country and That Nashville Music. Apparently, Everette was more personally in- 
volved in this album, which is expected in June, than previous releases. Besides co- 
producing, he co-wrote a pair of the record’s tunes and worked exclusively with his 
road band, Hurricane. Though Everette supported his last effort, “Hurricane,” with an 
airplane tour of radio stations across the nation, word is that no similar undertaking is 
planned behind the wheel of a Maverick automobile. tom roland

ON JAZZ 


PALO ALTO JAZZ — It takes a lot of faith and ability to launch a new label from scratch 
— but that bill is being filled handily by newcomer Palo Alto Jazz. Financed by the 
Benham Management Corp., a California-based money market fund, and headed up 
by Dr. Herb Wong, the label's first titles and future release schedule amply demonstrate 
that Palo Alto is in it for the long run. Already out are: “Urban Dreams” by Pepper 
Adams; “Basically Count” by Tee Carson and the Count Basie Bandsmen; “It’s About 
Time” by saxophonist Lanny Morgan; “Jazz Party” by vibistTerry Gibbs and clarinetist 
Buddy deFranco; “Blues and Other Happy Moments" by the Barone Brothers; and two 
albums by the Full Faith & Credit Big Band, “Debut" and “Jazzfaire.” The uniformly 

superior and beautifully packaged line 
will be expanded in June and August 
with a wide mix of both new and es- 
tablished artists. Set for release in June 
are: “Earth Jones” by drummer Elvin 
Jones with Dave Liebman on reeds, 
Terumasa Hino on trumpet, George 
Mraz on bass and Kenny Kirkland on 
piano; “One Entrance, Many Exits" by 
pianist Mai Waldron with Joe Hender- 
son on tenor, David Friesen on bass and 
Billy Higgins on the drums; “Heart of the 
Forrest,” a live trio date by the late 
Jimmy Forrest recorded at the Club 
Alibi in Grand Rapids, Mich., featuring 
Shirley Scott on organ and Randy 
Marsh on drums; “Free Flight,” the 
debut album by the same-named West 
Coast jazz/classical quartet. The highly 
touted foursome features Jim Walker,

Jerome Richardson and Charles McPherson; and “On Fire” by drummer Les DeMerle, 
whose credits include the California-based Transfusion group and Richie Cole. 
Sidemen on the DeMerle disc include trumpeter Bobby Shew, saxophonists Don

case you can digest all that, the August releases include more than a few intriguing 
items: “Bebop Forever,” a live alto summit recorded at San Francisco’s Keystone Kor-

Mother’s Day Sales 

(continued from page 19) 

of record sales, was John D'Antoni, buyer for 
New York’s five Disc-Q-Mat stores. Like 
Balicky, D’Antoni advertised to support 
Mother’s Day, but he looked to the end of 
the school year to be the "big” holiday. Also 
in agreement, Wendy Birky, merchandising 
coordinator at Milwaukee’s Radio Doctors, 
had both a PolyQram and a soul & jazz sale 
already running during the Mother's Day 
period, and thus did nothing special for it. 
“Mother’s Day doesn’t sell much product 
for us,” she said. 

Turtle’s Martin called Valentine’s Day a 
“super holiday” for Atlanta, but said that 
both Mother’s Day and Father’s Day were 
not big record days. "Of course, any holiday 
helps because it brings people out shopp- 
ing with buying on their minds,” he said. But 
he found that children or spouses usually

bought parents candy or clothes instead of 
records or gift certificates. 

That Mother’s Day occurs so close to 
Father’s Day and school graduations is a 
taken into consideration by retailers. 
Stark/Cameiot uses generic in-store 
signage promoting all three dates. Har- 
mony Hut’s Schmitt expects bigger sales 
from both Father’s Day and school gradua- 
tions. And Amarillo’s Western Merchan- 
disers, which operates 96 Hastings Books/- 
Records/VIdeo outlets, linked its Mother’s 
Day promotion directly with school gradua- 
tion. Bruce Shortz, Western Merchan- " 
disers’ general manager, retail division, 
said that strong sales maintained a six- < 
month momentum. But while the week was 
excellent, he found that college markets, 
though a little stronger than others, were 
not “killer” as expected.

y* Motels 


THE WHISKY, L.A. — Hot on the heels of 
the recently released "All Four One" LP, 
Capitol recording group The Motels served 
notice this night that it has survived recent 
personnel turnover quite well (thank you) to 
become one of the most talented up-and- 
coming bands on the scene. Led by the ex- 
traordinary Martha Davis, The Motels are 
now a band that has truly hit a mature and 
professional stride, with all of the pieces 
fitting nearly perfectly (a little more playing 
will solve that). 

New guitarist Guy Perry fits in well with the 
band — which includes Marty Jourard on 
keyboards and sax, Michael Goodroe on 
bass and Brian Glasscock on drums — but 
the real story was the now-supremely confi- 
dent Davis. Nearly three years of playing on 
the edge of big-time success have honed 
Davis into an animated and absorbing per- 
former, able to capture and hold an 
audience without appearing to try too hard. 

Ranging through a set that included cuts 
from all three of the band’s Capitol LPs, 
Davis & Co. delivered scorching renditions 
of "Celia” and “Total Control” from the 
debut self-titled album; the title cut from 
"Danger"; and the current single, "Only The 
Lonely,” and “Apocalypso" from “All Four 
One.” And even though much of the crowd 
was made up of Motels fans to begin with, 
the new energy infused into the numbers 
provided a pleasant surprise that soon tur- 
ned Into something more impressive. 

One of the most talented bands to be 
spawned on the L.A. scene in recent years, 
slow commercial recognition has dogged 
the path of the Motels. If this performance 
and the latest LP are any indication, the 
hunger of those years has made The Motels 
a band to watch.

ickie Lee Jones 


PERKINS PALACE, PASADENA — In a 
powerfully emotional and exceptionally 
professional performance, L.A. homegirl 
Rickie Lee Jones successfully countered 
the bombastic warblings of rock journalists 
who described her as a self-destructive ar- 
tist on the skids, providing her audience 
with a well-rounded show that encom- 
passed both classic pop chestnuts and a 
comprehensive overview of her own work 
to date. Backed by a solid six-piece band, 
plus the R&B-tinged horn section from local 
club favorites Jack Mack and the Heart At- 
tack, Jones sang, played keyboards and 
boogied her way through nearly two hours 
of songs that made the crowd alternately 
laugh, cry, dance and, ultimately, respond 
with a thunderous standing ovation 
punctuated by cheers, whoops and howls 
of pleasure. 

Surely, prior to the show the audience 
had reason to be reticent. Out-of-town 
reports of other gigs on her tour compared 
the sultry singer’s shows to the final perfor- 
mances of such ill-fated artists as Janis 
Joplin and Judy Garland. But even before 
Jones appeared on stage in Pasadena, as 
the theater's speakers greeted incoming 
concertgoers with melodies like “Cool” 
from the Leonard Bernstein musical West 
Side Story , the gathered knew that 
something exciting was about to take place. 
When Jones and her entourage entered 
and started playing the first number of the 
evening, a hush fell over the sold-out 
masses and the magic began. 

If, indeed, those other performances 


were said to resemble Joplin dnd Garland, 
then it would be only fair to compare her 
prowess at this show as a cross between 
Sarah Vaughn and Joni Mitchell. Like 
Vaughn, Jones is capable of unbelievable 
vocal extrapolations, as a free-form, scat 
version of Rogers and Hart’s “My Funny 
Valentine" demonstrated. And, in rendi- 
tions of her own beatific compositions, she 
proved beyond a shadow of a doubt that, 
like Mitchell, she is gifted with a flair for 
words that admirably convey the most sen- 
sitive feelings and emotions In each of us. 
But to stack Rickie Lee Jones against any 
artist, even those as acclaimed as Vaughn 
or Mitchell, is itself a misrepresentation. 
She’s an original, and no comparison to 
another performer quite does her justice. 

Of course, it would be ridiculous to 
assume that, although she possesses her 
own unique style and skill, Jones hasn’t 
been influenced by various entertainers. In 
her distinctive versions of such tunes as the 
Jackson 5’s "Stop (The Love You Save)” 
and The Left Bank’s “Walk Away Renee,” 
she proved her ability at handling familiar 
high-energy rock songs and smokey, 
wistful ballads. However, it was the delivery 
of her self-penned compositions from her 
self-titled debut and last year’s "Pirates” 
album that really knocked out the throng. 
When she returned to the stage for an en- 
core and sang her signature tune, “Chuck 
E.’s in Love,” it was clear Rickie Lee was in 
love too — with her art.

T 

I he Human League 


PALLADIUM, NYC — The show staged 
here by A&M recording act The Human 
League was less a concert than a futuristic 
multi-media show. In true electro-pop 
fashion, the English sextet used two syn- 
thesizers to perform the functions of an en- 
tire band, and a programmed slide show to 
augment each song. 

The show was, however, a bit of a disap- 
pointment. While Wright attempted to 
make a statement by projecting slides onto 
a backdrop, lead vocalist Philip Oakey 
seemed aloof and unwilling to communicate 
with the audience. This was especially true 
with the band's hit single, “Don’t You Want 
Me.” Despite his delivery on record, Oakey 
seemed unable to effectively convey the 
song’s hauting qualities. 

The number also featured a stanza sung 
by group member Joanne Catherall, the 
only opportunity given to the female band 
members to do anything but dance 
mechanically and sing perfunctory back- 
up vocals. 

On the other hand, Oakey’s rendition of 
the slower-moving “I Am The Law” was 
more effective. Shots of the late Senator 
Joe McCarthy and a law book inscribed 
with Ronald Reagan’s name combined with 
a long eerie keyboard solo created an 
almost terrifying atmosphere. Oakey’s ren- 
dition of “Darkness,” replete with comic- 
book blow-ups of the word “Fear” and the 
phrase “Doctor, I’ve Just Had a Nightmare,” 
was equally scary. 

Although the Human League’s most con- 
vincing performances were of songs deal- 
ing with life’s darker side, the group did a 
fine job with its upbeat “Things That 
Dreams Are Made Of.” Oakey’s powerful 
voice, combined with shots of the 
Pyramids, the Empire State Building and 
the Ramones, helped create a good feeling 
among the audience. 

Although the show was billed as a dance 
concert, there was little room to maneuver 
on the specially constructed dance floor. 
But that did not deter the die-hard dancers 
in the 3 /4-filled hall, some of whom took to 
the aisles. larry riggs

PolyGram’s field marketing staff will be 
renewing the dealer awareness program it 
started three years ago. 

“The program’s aim is to make local 
dealers aware of what product and 
marketing resources will be available dur- 
ing the month of June." 

As Miller London, vice president of sales 
at Motown Records pointed out, “We want 
people to know it’s important to support 
biack music year-round, but we are taking 
steps to let people know that Biack Music 
Month does exist.” 

London said Motown has been running a 
tag with all its radio spots during May 
reminding listeners that June is Black 
Music Month. He added that a June cam- 


paign featuring the label’s entire midline 
catalog, which he called a “heritage of 
biack music,” would be bowed along with a 
massive campaign on current LPs by Stevie 
Wonder, The Dazz Band, the reunited 
Temptations, Hi Inergy and the newly 
released LP by Rick James. 

In addition to In-store material featuring 
a special display of current product and ex- 
tensive radio spots (which will continue to 
note that June is Black Music Month), 
Motown will reactivate a national radio 
campaign using a recorded history of , 
Motown music featuring narration by 
Smokey Robinson. \ 

Other companies were still preparing the 
final steps of their Black Music promotions 
for the June month and did not have full 
details at press time.

Phil Woods on clarinet and alto, Hank Jones on piano, Steve Gilmore on bass, Bill 
Goodwin on drums, with a string quartet arranged and conducted by Manny Albam. All 
very tasty stuff. Of course, now that we've whetted your appetite, we can tell you that 
Wong also promises future titles by Jimmy Knepper, Chico Freeman, an Art Pepper/ 
Richie Cole confrontation, a Marvin Stamm big band and the debut of The Continuum, 
a Tadd Dameron memorial band featuring drummer Art Taylor, bassist Ron Carter, 
pianist Kenny Barron, trombonist Slide Hampton and saxophonist Jimmy Heath, with 
new arrangements by Heath and Hampton. Also down the road is a “Monterey 
Archives” five-record box set, featuring selections from the last 24 years of the Mon- 
terey Festival. Royalties from the set will be allocated for the Jazz Education at Mon- 
terey program, and Wong pledges that the label will do an anniversary LP from the 
Festival every year. Quite a start. 

JULIUS HEMPHILL BENEFIT — Regular readers of this column no doubt recall that 
saxophonist Julius Hemphill was recently sidelined with a severe infection that led to 
the amputation of his lower right leg. We’re pleased to report that the only complica- 
tions to arise have been financial — but even that appears to be on the road to recovery. 
On Monday, May 24, the Public Theater in New York will play host to a benefit concert 
for Hemphill to help defray the enormous costs of medical expenses and rehabilitation. 
Organized by saxophonist Marty Ehrlich, the program will feature Muhal Richard

RADIO FREE SOUTH AFRICA — The Dag Hammerskjold Auditorium at the United Na- 
tions was recently the site of a concert by pianist Mai Waldron and saxophonist Steve 
Lacy. The show, sponsored by the Radio Service of the department of public informa- 
tion at the U.N., was taped for broadcast into South Africa as part of the U.N.'s continu- 
ing anti-apartheid program. The music will be part of a daily program of news and infor- 
mation on apartheid and in support of the right to self-determination broadcast four 
times a day by U.N. member countries with transmitters heard in southern Africa. In- 
cidentally, the duo sounded quite good, performing Thelonious Monk’s “Round Mid- 
night,” as well as several original compositions including Waldron’s “Hooray For Her- 
bie” and Lacy's “No Baby.”

CAB Attacks CBC FM Plan 


Argentina 

BUENOS AIRES — EMI is experimenting 
with a TV campaign that is not aimed at the 
sale of a particular album but to a group of 
tapes by Frank Pourcel, with instrumental 
renderings of well-known classical music 
works. The ads are aired by Channel 1 3. On 
ATC, the same company is promoting 
Gianfranco Pagllaro’s latest album, with 
good results. EMI held a sales & promo 
convention last week in the town of Arroyito 
in the province of Santa Fe, and this week 
gathered the people from the southern part 
of the country in Buenos Aires. 

RCA has released an album tagged 
"Pioneers of Rock in Argentina” featuring 
tracks by several of the top names of this 
type of music between 10 and 14 years ago, 
when this movement was born. The LP in- 
cludes Lltto Nebbla, who recently returned 
from long stints in Mexico, Brazil and the 
States; Moris, currently established in 
Spain; and Luis Alberto Spinetta, who has 
been considered for years the top name in 
the field. Rock music by local artists is 
currently the hottest repertoire in this 
market. 

CBS reports the re-inking to a long term 
pact of folk group Los Trovadores, which 
took part in the folk revival movement dur- 
ing the ’60s. For tango music fans, the com- 
pany has inked well-know disk jockey and 
TV emcee Silvio Soldan, who for many 
years has conducted on Channel 9 a 
program titled Grandes valores, featuring 
both famous and unknown artists. Soldan’s 
duty will be to produce records by the most 
promising artists. 

PolyGram is also competing in the pop- 
folk field. The diskery headed by John Lear 
has inked duet Arlequln, which has already 
recorded its first single and had previous 
experience with two rock bands, Cathedral 
and Absidlal. It is interesting to mention 
that they have their own recording studios 
with eight-track equipment. 

Magnatec is releasing three new tapes in 
its Magnatape budget line, aiming at the 
classical music fan who finds imported 
records are out of his reach due to the high 
exchange rate and is not serviced yet by the 
major companies, who reduced their 
releases when the imported record took 
hold of the market. In spite of the price, 
Magnatape uses Ampex high quality tape 
and applies the Dolby process to its 
product.

OTTAWA — Can the war on U.S. radio 
really be on? The Canadian Radio- 
Television and Telecommunications Com- 
mission (CRTC) said May 7 it will no longer 
allow cable services to add American sta- 
tions to their distribution signal. While the 
CRTC said it would permit existing stations 


to stay on the service, chances are that 
severe limitations on their numbers will be 
announced when the commission an- 
nounces its revised radio policy later this 
year or in early 1983 . . . Pencil in Sept. 21 
as the day the federal inquiry into the arts, 
better known as the Applebaum-Hebert 
Commission, releases its recommenda- 
tions . . . Pat Nagle will come to Ottawa to 
run the country’s biggest campus radio sta- 
tion, CKCU-FM . . . The Nylons’ debut 
album on Attic Records has well surpassed 
gold status, and the group’s cross-country 
tour to support the a cappella disc is selling 
out . . . Anne Murray received an honorary 
doctorate of letters from St. Francis Xavier 
University May 10 . . . Whatever record 
company owns the rights to Steam's not- 
so-memorable song from the early-’70s, 
“Na Na Na Hey Hey,” would be well advised 
to re-issue it. The song is the biggest 
new darling of the sports enthusiasts . . . 
Juno award-winning group Trooper, which 
recently released its first U.S. LP, “Money 
Talks” on RCA, is busy rehearsing here for 
an American tour it hopes will take place in 
June.

MILAN — Effective May 1, RiFi Record 
closed its distribution department and en- 
trusted its catalog to CGD-Messaggerie 
Musicali. The signing of the agreement was 
announced by Vitoria Mereu, managing 
director of RiFi, who also told that all the 
RiFi midline "Penny Oro” will be reprinted 
during next months in a new graphic look. 

The release of the new album by sing- 
er/songwriter Antonello Venditti on the 
new Sotto la Pioggia label, distributed by 
Dischi Ricordi, caused a reaction by 
PolyGram, which since 1980 is in legal ac- 
tion against the artist for the breaking of his 
contract. PolyGram announced the resign- 
ing from the A.F.I. (Italian Record Industry 
Assn.) council, following to the distribution 
agreement between Dischi Richordi and 
Sotto la Pioggia. 

A concert called Rockitalia ’82, with the 
presence of Italian artists like Loredana 
Berte and Alberto Fortis, has been an- 
nounced by Italian Music Promotion to be 
held in New York in September. 

The sales of records through the 
newspaper kiosks rose in 1981 to 15 
million units (LPs and cassettes) for a total 
of about $40 million. Actually, five 
publishing groups are active in this sector 
in Italy. 

Arnaldo Morosi resigned from his post of 
product manager/pop at Fonit Cetra. His 
position will be held temporarily by Gianni 
Bortolll, head of the music publishing 
department of the group . . . Luciano 
Ferone is the new head of the radio-TV 
promotion unit at CBS in Rome.

HULL, Quebec — Plans by the government- 
operated Canadian Broadcasting Corp. 
(CBC) to convert its AM stations to English 
and French language FM stations by the 
year 2010 are not in the best interests of the 
broadcasting community, the Canadian 
Assn, of Broadcasters (CAB) says. 

In hearings last month before the Cana- 
dian Radio-Television and Telecom- 
munications Commission (CRTC) — the 
federal regulatory agency for broadcasting 
in the country — CAB representatives said 
they fear the CBC will be allowed to reserve, 
but not use, scarce FM frequencies as part 
of the proposal. 

The public network plan was first out- 
lined in 1 980, when the CBC said it wanted 
most of its radio service on the FM band by 
the year 2000 and complete conversion 10 
years later. 

But the CAB, representing rival private 
broadcasters across the country, says it is 
most concerned about a CBC plan to 
eliminate its affiliations with private stations 
across the country and take over all its 
own programming and broadcasting 
responsibilities. Private work com- 

Canadian Industry 
Group Bows Fund 

by Kirk LaPointe 

TORONTO — A production fund, with initial 
working capital of more than $200,000 and 
an expected $1 million growth in its first 
year, has been established by a group of 
publishers, producers and broadcasters to 
foster further development of the Canadian 
recording industry. 

Broadly hinted at during radio policy 
review hearings in March, the creation of 
the fund marks the most substantial such 
collective effort by industry concerns to 
finance the often-infeasible Canadian 
recording scene. 

The fund plans to support Canadian 
recording through grants and interest-free 
loans to cover up to 50% of any one produc- 
tion. 

The fund will be administered by the 
Canadian Independent Recording Produc- 
tion Assn. (CIRPA), but allocation of funds 
will be decided by independent juries of 
radio music directors, A&R personnel, 
managers and musicians. 

Under the proposal, the fund will receive 
one percent of sales from records made 
through fund assistance, which will be 
directed towards further production. The 
fund was staked initially by CIRPA, the 
Canadian Music Publishers Assn, and 
three private radio firms — Moffat Com- 
munications Ltd., CHUM Ltd. and Rogers 
Radio Broadcasting, Ltd. 

The fund will operate as a non-profit ven- 
ture, organizers said. 


missioned by the CBC has been a lucrative 
practice for many producers and techni- 
cians. 

John Ansell, chairman of the CAB, told 
the CRTC that most CBC AM stations 
already provide satisfactory service to the 
public. In many instances, Ansell said, the 
CBC service exceeds its mandate. As such, 
he questioned whether the substantial cost 
of conversion is really worth it, in view of the 
fact most communities are well-served by 
the AM stations. 

“The CBC needs more than 500 new FM 
transmitters to achieve its goal,” Ansell 
noted. 

When the CBC first made its proposal, it 
said the switch was necessary because a 
shortage of AM frequencies was develop- 
ing and that those available were of too low 
quality to be useful. It also said FM’s 
technical superiority made the expensive 
proposal worthwhile. 

But the mitigating fear of the private 
broadcasters is that the CBC will seek to ex- 
pand into regions it does not already serve, 
eroding the competitiveness of private out- 
lets in more remote areas. 

The CAB did not recommend a solution, 
but just offered that the CBC may have 
legitimate FM needs but should work out “a 
more realistic and efficient seheme for 
achieving them.” 

CRI Shuffles

Quincy Jones 

Is TVying To 
Save Your Job. 



How You 

We need a new law passed in Washington. This law 
recognizes that home taping is here , but also recognizes that 
we who created the music should receive a royalty from the 
blank tapes and recorders sold which take our music. 

Quincy Jones believes the future of recorded music may 
rest on the passage of this law. The greatest coalition in the 
history of the music community* agrees. 

Active people are now needed. People who can send a post 
card, or make a phone call. (No money’s being asked for). 

Laws don’t get passed just because they’re right. They 
have to be right and loud . 

That’s where you come in. Right now, we need lou d. 

Loud, from people who want to save their jobs, save their 
industry, and save the variety and abundance of our music. 

Our Gang 

The performers : AFM, AFTRA. 

The writers : AGAC, ASCAR ASUC (University Composers), 

BMI, MPA (Music Publisher’s Assn.), NAPM (Popular Music), 

NSAI (Nashville Songwriters), NMPA, SESAC, SRS 
(Songwriter’s Resources). 

The engineers : SPARS. 

The music trade : NARM, RIAA. 

‘The Coalition to SAVE AMERICA'S MUSIC covers over two million people, over one thousand different 
companies, and probably you. Look who's together on this: L 


Can Help. 

The National Music Council : 61 national music organizations: 
1,500,000 members. 

The music supporters : BMA (Black Music Assn.), CMA, GMA 
(Gospel Music), NMA (Nashville). 

What to Do

Hawaii, the new video game has really 
been catching on, resulting in substantial 
re-orders and stepped up delivery 
schedules to try and meet the growing 
demand, as we learned from Don 
Osborne, firm’s vice president of sales 
and marketing. While the game was 
among the highlights of the meeting, the 
theme focused on the first decade for 
Atari — the company’s tenth anniversary 
and the birth of the video game. You’ve 
come a long way, baby! Don mentioned 
that public relations was another prime 
issue on the agenda at the Hawaii 
meeting. Atari has produced a 17-minute 
video tape, in a documentary format, 
which concentrates on the 
professionalism and positive side of the 
coin machine industry in general, in an 
effort to promote a better image and 
offset some of the negative publicity of 
the past (Cash Box, May 8). The effort 
presents an objective view and is geared 
to serve not just Atari but the entire in- 
dustry. It will be circulated to Atari 
distributors.

LOS ANGELES — - While many so-called 
“civic groups” around the country are rallying 
for legislation aimed at regulating public use 
of amusement machines, a legion of physi- 
cians, psychiatrists, social workers and other 
professionals are adapting the popular video 
games to help rehabilitate and test their 
charges. Both arcade amusements and the 
home game units — thought of as mere 
frivolities by some — can be extremely useful 
in aiding spatial and perceptual motor skills 
like hand-eye coordination, recreational 
therapy, and otherwise tedious testing 
proceedures, according to the doctors and 
researchers utilizing the machines. 

These medical video projects aren’t 
relegated simply to a few associate teaching 
assistants at some small junior college 
spending the science department’s funds on 
endless hours of “Donkey Kong.” On the con- 
trary, institutions ranging from the 
prestigious Massachusetts Institute of 
Technology to federally-funded V.A. 
hospitals currently have employees con- 
ducting a battery of serious studies using the 
devices. 

On the industry side. Atari Inc. has led the 
way in establishing innovative research of 
electronic amusements through a loan 
program for responsible educators and 
medical experimenters. Through an arm of the 
organization called The Atari Institute, which 
is separate from the sales and marketing divi- 
sions, the company evaluates research 


proposals and grants for money and equip- 
ment used in sundry undertakings. Although 
Atari doesn’t suggest or solicit avenues of 
research, the corporation, which is a wholly- 
owned subsidiary of Warner Communica-

Legislative Issues 
Dominate NYPAA 
Annual Meeting 

NEW YORK — The New York Parks and 
Attractions Assn. (NYPAA) held its annual 
meeting April 23 at the Sheraton Conference 
Center in Utica, N.Y. The primary focus of 
the meeting was on several legal and legislative 
issues which could affect ride and game 
operators in New York State. 

Howard Kahn of Coney Island’s Astroland 
Amusement Park advised Cash Box that at- 
torney Malcolm B. O'Hara of Caffry, Pontiff, 
Stewart, Rhodes, and Judge of Glens Falls, 
N.Y. informed NYPAA members about New 
York State Assembly Bill # 11715 introduced 
by Jose Serrano of the Bronx. If instituted this 
“ride safety” bill would require both park and 
fair operators in New York State to register all 
rides with the State Department of Labor, ob- 
tain an operating permit, carry a minimum of 
$300,000 of liability insurance, inform the 
Labor Department of accidents within 24 
hours and close the ride until state inspectors 
permit it to open. Violators would face both 
civil and criminal penalties. All operators pre- 
sent agreed that the close down provision of 
the bill was unnecessary and far too restric- 
tive. 

Kahn informed NYPAA members about 
the various aspects of the Outdoor Amuse- 
ment Business Assn. (OABA) vs. the State Tax 
Commission case on whether or not game 
revenue should be subject to sales tax. The 
New York State Appeals Court said game 
revenues should be subject to sales tax. The 
case remains on further appeal by the OABA 
which has spent a reported $20,000 thusfar on 
the case. 

Kahn also informed members about four 
Assembly Bills and one Senate Bill which 
could affect game operators. The key provi- 
sions of the bills are as follows: Assembly Bill 
# 11133 would require game operators to pay 
a 25% tax on the gross receipts of coin 
operated games and install publicly visible 
meters counting the number of plays on each 
game for the State Tax Commission. 
Assembly Bill # 11140 would require a licens- 
ing fee of $250 for each coin operated game in 
addition to any other fee imposed by a 
municipality. Assembly Bill # 11141 would 
make it illegal for children under 12 to enter an 
amusement arcade without an adult and it 
would be illegal for children under 1 6 to enter 
an arcade before 3:00 p.m. on a school day 
without an adult. This bill, however, would 
not apply to amusement parks or fairs. 
Assembly Bill # 1 1688 would impose a $50 tax 
on all coin operated games in arcades or street 
locations and a $25 tax on coin operated 
games in seasonal operations. Money raised 
through this tax would be used for a school at- 
tendance service fund. Senate Bill # 8249 
would impose a $75 privilege tax on all coin 
operated games; however, if the game is 
located where five or more games are operated 
(i.e. an arcade) the tax would be $200 per 
game. 

After some discussion NYPAA members 
unanimously agreed that the bills were serious 
threats to the existence of their businesses. A 
special fund was raised and the NYPAA hired 
attorney and lobbyist Thomas Laverne from 
Rochester, N.Y. to represent them. Laverne 
also represents the New York State Coin 
Machine Assn, (of which Millie McCarthy is 
president) and the Music and Amusement 
Assn, (headed by Howard Herman). 

In other business, Mike Snyder of Darien 
Lake Fun Country and Corfu and Chip 
Cleary of Adventureland in Farmingdale, 
were elected to the association board of direc- 
tors. The entire slate of officers were re- 
elected. They are: Charles Wood (Storytown-

Rock-Ola, Techstar Pact Announced 


CHICAGO — A licensing agreement be- 
tween Rock-Ola Manufacturing Corp. and 
Techstar, Inc. of Miami, Fla. for Techstar’s 
video game “Eyes” was announced by Donald 
C. Rockola, president of the Chicago-based 
manufacturing firm. The agreement was con- 
cluded at a meeting in Chicago with Techstar’s 
president Bill Olliges. 

In making the announcement Rockola 
stated, “ ‘Eyes’ is a sophisticated, highly 
responsive strategy game and we are pleased 
to acquire it for the coin market. The game 
utilizes highly intelligent ‘hunter eyes’, which 
challenge the player’s defensive and strategy 
playing ability. 


“Eyes is an entirely new concept which will 
give Rock-Ola distributors an excellent game 
geared to those skills players have already 
developed on other current popular video 
games.” 

Rock-Ola Manufacturing Corp., best 
known for its jukebox line, has been produc- 
ing video games for the past year. “We are 
confident that Eyes will place Rock-Ola in the 
forefront as a quality video game manufac- 
turer,” concluded Rockola. 

Sample orders will be delivered to factory 
distributors beginning in mid-May. Eyes will 
be available in both upright and cocktail table 
models.

animated series and some prime-time 
animated TV specials (that will, 
hopefully, be aired before the end of this 
year) on Pac-Man. This we learned from 
Bally Midway’s vice president-marketing 
Stan Jarocki. In the course of our conver- 
sation the subject of “Ms. Pac-Man” 
naturally came up and, as things stand 
right now, this model is doing record 
business, racking up fantastic sales 
' figures in a shorter period of time than its 
illustrious predecessor. Of course, “Ms. 
Pac-Man” is actually a glamorized exten- 
sion of Pac-Man with some added 
challenges in the play format. The success 
of “Ms. Pac-Man” certainly disproves 
the myth that a follow-up has a harder 
time in the marketplace. Not so with this 
model; it’s doing superbly.

Stern’s marketing director Tom 
Campbell returned last week from a road

new Bally Northeast facilities in 
Norwood. Tom said they really “did 
everything right” at the new digs, in 
terms of decor, departmental functions, 
efficiency, et al. He also attended the 
open house gala hosted by Music Vend at 
its new Spokane, Wash, quarters and 
went on to spend some time at the Music 
Vend premises in Seattle. From there he 
made stops in Portland, Ore. to visit with 
the good people at Dunis Distg. and 
McKee Distg. . . . Back on the home 
front, Tom said Stern is still delivering 
the “Amidar” and “Frenzy” video games 
and enjoying encouraging response to the 
recently debuted “Orbitor I” pingame. 
Next up will be the “Tazzmania” video 
game which the factory is just about 
getting ready to sample ship. Watch for 
it.

had more interest than we anticipated, with 
many new leagues and operator associations 
taking part. We have every expectation that

BALLY SHOWTIME — A full contingent of Bally Pinball Division executives and personnel, 
led by president Chuck Farmer and vice president of marketing Tom Nieman, were pre- 
sent at the March AOE convention in Chicago to help man the Bally exhibit. Additionally, 
several lovely models were on hand to greet show visitors and help demonstrate some of 
the equipment. Among the key attractions at the Bally booth were the new "Mr. and Mrs. 
Pac-Man Pinball" and the exciting " Rapid Fire" game, which were both unveiled at the 
AOE. On the evening of the show's opening day Bally hosted a party for distributors, 


operators and guests. The convention proved to be very successful for the Bally Pinball 
Division, according to Nieman, and the two machines had people waiting in line to play 
them. Pictured are (l-r): Nieman, models Christie Michaels and Betsy Walton, and Farmer; 
Nieman with that "I told you so” expression as enthusiastic players hover over the Mr. and 
Mrs. Pac-Man Pinball; and Jim Patla, designer of Rapid Fire; showing distributors and 
operators how to master the game. The factory is currently shipping Mr. and Mrs. Pac- 
Man through its distributors around the country. 


Video Games Seen As Valuable Research, Rehabilitation Aids

skills, memory, motor skills, visual tracking 
and scanning and other faculties. Having used 
a home video computer system as an aid in 
brain injury rehabilitation since 1978, the 
director reports that most patients now res- 
pond enthusiastically to testing which, prior 
to the introduction of the computer system, 
had been perceived as boring and prosaic. 

"Not all of our patients get put on the 
games,” said Dr. Lynch, “but the ones who do 
invariably enjoy it and sometimes show us 
things they wouldn’t in otherwise traditional 
settings. Sometimes they get so involved with 
the game tests that they don’t want to stop 
playing, so there’s no motivational problem to 
get them used to the machines. The only 
negative reaction we’ve gotten has been in a 
few isolated cases of older people who won’t 

Kaminkow Named 
Centuri President

man and chief executive officer of Centuri. 

"We’re extremely pleased to have a man of 
Arnold Kaminkow’s caliber heading up our 
management team at Centuri,” stated 
Koffman. “We’re certain his extensive ex- 
perience and vast knowledge of the industry 
will be a tremendous asset to the company.” 

Prior to joining Centuri, Kaminkow spent 
seven years as executive vice president, and 
president and CEO of Bally Northeast Dis- 
tributing, Inc., a wholly-owned subsidiary of 
Bally Manufacturing Corp. During his tenure 
with the Massachusetts-based firm, sales 
reportedly jumped from $2 million in 1974 to 
$50 million in 1981 . 


let themselves enjoy the testing. On the other 
hand, the majority of people, especially the 
younger patients, played the games before 
they came here and they like the new format a 
lot.” 

According to the doctor, his unit doesn’t 
use highly competitive, flashy games that may 
easily excite his patients, many of whom are 
restricted from excessive stimulation due to 
their injuries. Right now the V.A. hospital is 
using home versions of games to rehabilitate 
its cases, although Dr. Lynch believes arcade 
games should be made available to open 
wards like the psychiatry division because of 
their sturdiness and optimum resolution. 

In the past few years, commented the physi- 
cian, video games used for rehab purposes 
have become much more prevalent in the 
medical community and is a frequent subject 
at seminars for therapists. In the future, he 
believes the games will not only be used as 
rehab tools but also as a means for diagnosing 
illnesses. Furthermore, Lynch suggests that 
hospitals and rehabilitation clinics consider 
making the games more accessible — perhaps 
as an option for in-patients who rent television 
sets for their rooms — as helpful motor 
therapy and to relieve the boredom inherent in 
long recovery periods. 

On the other side of the country. Professor 
Renee Okoye, an occupational therapist, has 
been working in Massapequa, N.Y. 
evaluating video game performances of 
children with learning disabilities and central 
nervous system dysfunctions, stroke patients, 
and people with such hand problems as 
arthritis and fractures. To date, Okoye has 
conducted approximately 25 different experi- 
ments with the games and hopes to soon write 


a classroom guide offering a developmental 
model organizing the games into various 
levels of challenge and age-appropriateness. 
Although Okoye is usually assisted by 
associate Tony Hollander, a psychological 
researcher who utilizes video amusements in 
his studies of autistic children, behavioral dis- 
order cases and family therapy, the idea to ap- 
ply the games to scientific testing was initiated 
by the professor about four years ago while 
she was speaking at a seminar in Milwaukee, 
Wise. 

“The hotel I was staying at had a coin- 
operated ‘Battle Zone’ machine in the lobby, 
and, as I was playing it, I realized the skills re- 
quired to earn high scores made the unit more 
than j*ist a mere game. A short time later, 
Tony and I developed a pilot project using the 
video machines with learning-disabled 
children. The results were truly amazing, and 
the games showed tremendous promise as 
valuable tools for perceptual research.” 

Another researcher who has used vid 
amusements as an extensive part of his studies 
is Jess McKenzie, chief of the Stress Analysis 
Research Unit which is a part of the Federal 
Aviation Administration’s Aviation 
Physiology Laboratory in Oklahoma. Mr. 
McKenzie has recently concluded a half-year 
study*on the effects of alcohol on non- 
commercial airplane pilots, and tested about 
25 people with hangovers for coordination 
and response with Atari game equipment. 

Alcohol Abuse Program 

“Oyr goal was to evaluate a number of per- 
formance and biochemical tests for alcohol 
abuse,” said McKenzie of his project. “We 
wanted to develop a series of screening tests 
that could detect alcoholism in very early 


stages. It’s easy to detect it when the guy has a 
liver that’s twice the size of a normal organ 
and as hard as a rock. Specifically, we used 
games like ‘Aerial Combat,’ ‘Breakout’ and 
‘Slalom’ as part of a 25-test series, and we’ll be 
reporting findings next month to the 
Aerospace Medical Association meeting in 
Bal Harbour, Fla.” 

As to how computer games can help in com- 
plex testing methodology, McKenzie stated, 
“Electronics in general, and the games in par- 
ticular, are offering a cheap way to perform 
psycho-motor performance testing. The navy 
did a study a while back that showed you can 
take an inexpensive video console game and 
use it to tap certain talents that heretofore had 
to be measured with expensive ‘pursuit- 
tracking’ devices that can run anywhere from 
$2,000 to $5,000!” 

McKenzie, Dr. Lynch and Professor Okoye 
are but three of the dozens of researchers using 
this exciting medium to further their studies of 
puzzling physiological and psychological , 
phenomena. 

At the Universtiy of Illinois at Champagne- 
Urbana a doctor is using modified vid games 
to monitor brain waves. Another medical ex- 
perimenter is using hand-held versions of the 
popular games to help teach hyperactive 
children how to focus their attention. Dr. 
Stephen Leff, a psychologist at Cambridge 
Hospital, associated with the Harvard 
Medical School, is involved in a project to 
help chronically disturbed mental patients tc 
overcome some of their motivation and social 
phobias. In South Carolina, Dr. Tomas 
Minor is working with around 50 college stu- 
dents to see how the games’ colors an .' sound 
levels can affect severely depressed teenagers.
